Cupping is an ancient alternative medicine technique that is used to heal the body from muscular pain, inflammation, circulation issues and tension. It can also used to help with symptoms from the common cold, nasal congestion, eczema, and acne.
The suction during cupping is created by a pneumatic device which will draw up any deep stagnation of body fluids like blood and lymph fluid, as well as encourage the movement of stagnant Qi. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, Qi is the name given to the body’s life energy. Cupping feels amazing on the muscles by getting them to relax and teaching the tissue to move better, while also assisting the body with its natural cleansing process, flushing stagnant fluids out to bring new, healthy fluids into the area.
