What is Cupping therapy?
This remarkable therapy employs negative pressure, rather than tissue compression, for superior results in the wide array of bodywork techniques. This method of therapy is a traditional, time-honored treatment used by millions of people worldwide because it’s safe, comfortable and remarkably effective for many health disorders. The value and efficacy of this therapy has been documented through several thousands of years of historical, clinical and subjective research. Now with the influence and growing popularity of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda and other influential healing methodologies, Cupping had re-emerged in the Western Holistic Community as a subtle, effective healing therapy.
How does Cupping work?
By creating suction and negative pressure, this therapy releases rigid soft tissue, drains excess fluids and toxins, loosens adhesions, lifts connective tissue, and brings blood flow to stagnant skin and muscles.
Myths about Cupping
Cupping does leave some marks on the body which could range from a pinkish, red, dark red, even deep purple color. This is NOT bruising. The marks are blood being drawn to the surface to heal the affected area. The darker the color, the more toxins and blood stagnation are noted in the area being treated.
