WHAT IS CUPPING?
Cupping involves placing glass, bamboo or plastic cups on areas of the body in order to provide pain relief. After identifying a problem area, your therapist will heat up the air inside the cup and place it on your body, either around the problem area or on a nearby acupoint. As the air in the cup cools, it creates a vacuum and suctions to your body.
Cupping is used to help alleviate pain, reduce tension and inflammation, increases relaxation, and can be used as part of a deep tissue massage. If you looking for localized as well as full body healing, increasing your overall health, and experiencing the relaxation and benefits of cupping, please contact us to book an appointment.
WHAT DOES CUPPING TREAT?
Along with providing a sense of deep relaxation as well as increased blood flow through your body, cupping can be used to treat the following:
- High blood pressure
- Anxiety and depression
- Acne and eczema
- Bronchial congestion (caused by asthma and allergies)
WILL THERE BE MARKS?
On a person in good health, cupping does not leave any marks once the cup has been removed. In a person with ailments, cupping can leave purple circular marks on the body. These marks can be thought of as similar to bruises. These marks are painless and will fade gradually within a few days.
