CUPPING

Cupping is a technique using small glass cups, where a local suction is created on the skin. The cups are left in place while the patient relaxes, or gently moved along the lines of the meridians, following the channels of energy running through the body. Cupping opens these channels, providing a smoother and more free-flowing qi through the body, tissues, and organs and sedating the nervous system.

Cupping is one of the best deep-tissue therapies available, believed to affect tissues up to 4 inches deep from the external skin. Toxins are released, blockages cleared, and veins and arteries refreshed.
