What is Cupping?


Cupping is a treatment in Traditional Chinese Medicine which uses cups to create suction on the skin to promote healing & detoxification. The suction formed pulls stagnated blood and lymph to the surface opening up the space below which releases tension and improves local circulation. Cupping is effective for pain relief and is a good alternative to massage and acupuncture.
