Cupping Therapy

cup

Cupping Therapy is an ancient Chinese method of alternative medicine. A partial vacuum is created in cups placed on the skin either by means of suction. This draws up the underlying tissues. When the cup is left in place on the skin for a few minutes, blood stasis is formed and pain-free, localized healing takes place.

Cupping has also been found to affect the body up to four inches into the tissues, causing tissues to release toxins, activate the lymphatic system, clear colon blockages, help activate and clear the veins, arteries and capillaries, activate the skin, clear stretch marks and improve varicose veins. Cupping is the best deep tissue massage available.
