Earliest Cupping practices date all the way back to 300 AD. And was recommended for treatment of pulmonary tuberculosis. In both Eastern and Western cultures, cupping evolved from practices that held the belief that illnesses can be sucked out of the body.
Cupping was established as an official therapeutic practice in the 1950s across hospitals in China and former Soviet Union after acupuncturists confirmed its effectiveness in reducing pain and other benefits.
We experience pain due to congestion, stagnation and blockage of our energy, fluids, lymph, phlegm and/or blood. Cupping is a method of breaking up this blockage to restore body’s natural flow of energy.

What Is Cupping?

Cupping is a technique that uses small glass cups as suction devices that are placed on the skin to disperse and break down stagnation and congestion. Our therapist will simply place suction cups on selected area.

How it works

One method of producing suction in the cups is used by swabbing rubbing alcohol onto the bottom of the cup, lighting it and putting the cup immediately against the skin. Flames are used to create heat which causes the suction within the small cups. Your skin will not be burned in the process, it is done simply to create vacuum like suction.
Once suction has occurred, the cups can be gently glided across the skin. Medical massage oils are sometimes applied to improve movement of the glass cups along the skin. The suction in the cups causes the skin and muscle layers to be lightly drawn into the cup. Sometimes cups are left in place for a short period of time while the patient relaxes. This is similar to acupuncture and massage techniques that target painful points on your body which provides relief through pressure.
The side effects of cupping may include a slight discomfort and markings left after cups placement which go away shortly.
