Cupping therapy is an ancient Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practice that involves suctioning or vacuuming sections of the body.

About Cupping

Cupping therapy is a minimally invasive treatment. Glass cups are warmed with a flame to create a vacuum. The cups can also be heated by swabbing rubbing alcohol on the bottom and then lighting the cup. It can also be done by placing an inverted cup over a flame to aid in suctioning.When placed over a specific area, the vacuum anchors the cup to the skin and pulls it upward. Drawing up the skin supports the opening of skin pores. The suction effect of cupping also breaks the blood vessels underneath skin, causing hyperaemia in the area. The self-healing process is activated when the body receives signals of this minor injury.

A series of chemical reactions follow, aiding an increase of blood circulation and lymphatic flow. The enhanced blood flow helps your body by flushing built-up toxins through the lymphatic system which is responsible for eliminating your body’s toxins and waste,
