  • Cupping


    Cupping is one of the oldest modalities of traditional Chinese medicine.

    It involves placing glass, bamboo, or plastic cups on the skin and creating a vacuum by suctioning out the air. The underlying tissue is raised, or sucked, into the cup. The purpose of cupping is to enhance circulation, help relieve pain, and pull out the toxins that linger in your body's tissues.

    During cupping, you are likely to feel a slight sensation of tightness in the area of the cup. Depending on your condition, the cups may be moved around or left in place for 5-10 mns. Cupping causes the skin to temporarily turn red, blue or purple, especially if there is an injury or energetic blockage under the area that was cupped. The skin discoloration can last anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks, but is rarely painful.

    Cupping can be helpful in the treatment of stress, pain, allergies, fatigue, flu, colds, back pain, anxiety, and muscle aches. Cupping can also help remove toxins from the body and stimulate the flow of fresh blood,  and Qi to the affected area and throughout the body.
