What is cupping and how does it work?
Cupping is an ancient form of deep tissue massage.
Basically, a partial vacuum is created inside the cups as they are on your skin, either by using heat or suction. This treatment option is used to stimulate the flow of blood, lymph, and energy to the affected area(s).
The health benefits of cupping:
- helps to release toxins in your body
- activates your lymphatic system
- clears your veins, arteries, and capillaries
During your session small, round cups are placed on your skin over acupuncture points. A vacuum is created inside the cups which draws your skin and muscle up tightly. When the cup is released blood, energy, and lymph flow more vigorously.
It is an effective way to relieve pain and congestion in your back or to relieve lung congestion due to an infection.
