Cupping Therapy

$

Cupping is a Traditional Chinese Medicine technique that has been used to relieve pain and release toxins for centuries. The cups are placed over the skin in the painful area(s) and the disuse is drawn into the cup which acts as a vacuum. This method releases the fascia, allowing the muscles underneath to relax. Sliding the cup or leaving it stationary for 10 minutes allows the stagnant blood to come to the surface so fresh blood carrying healing nutrients can fill the muscles, relieving pain.

Cupping sometimes leaves behind marks ranging from red to purple coloring, depending on whether you have a stagnation of blood in an area or a lack of blood flow. The marks may last anywhere from a few days to two weeks.

Cupping can be done as a solo treatment, or followed by acupuncture.
