Cupping

What is Cupping?

Cupping is an ancient therapy that is still popular in China. It is performed by introducing heat or some other means to create a vacuum inside a cupping vessel. When applied to the skin, suction is created which draws an increase of blood an qi (vital energy) to an area of injury and imbalance. Cupping achieves excellent results for a broad range of disorders that patients present with.

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), cupping balances the Yin and Yang, promotes the circulation of qi and blood, adjusts and enhances organ (tsang/fu) functions, draws to the skin surface and expels pathogenic factors, dispels dampness, warms the muscles and stops pain.
