Cupping Therapy

An ancient technique has found its place in the modern world of healing.

Cupping is a technique where a glass cup or bamboo jar is suctioned onto the body and allowed to sit for about ten minutes. This technique stimulates circulation, relieves swelling, and greatly enhances an acupuncture or Electro-acupuncture treatment. Cupping is used for many conditions including; back pain, shoulder pain, neck pain, common colds and influenza. Massage cupping is a modified version of the common practice of cupping therapy, used in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM),this simple treatment produces impressive results.

Through suction and negative pressure, massage cupping releases rigid soft tissue; drain excess fluids and toxins, loosen adhesions and lift connective tissue; and bring blood flow to stagnant skin and muscles. The therapeutic applications of cupping have been documented through several thousand years of practice. Cupping is used extensively in Traditional Chinese Medicine and has now been adapted for other health-care fields including Massage Therapy and Chiropractic.
