Cupping is a very ancient therapy going back to many ancient eastern cultures. History states it goes back as far as 1550 BC.

This Therapy uses small glass, silicon or plastic cups as suction devices and are placed on certain treatment areas on the skin a short period of time. This creates a vacuum and causes the skin to rise and redden as the blood vessels expand. Cups may be moved around and this feels like a deep tissue massage, as the myofascial tissue is stretched.

Cupping invigorates circulation, helps clear toxins, blockages and also helps move body fluids via the lymph nodes. Cupping is not painful though some patients do feel a form suction sensation which can be adjusted, generally it is very relaxing. This is great to muscular skeletal issues, such an neck and back aches, great to coughs and relieve congestion in your lungs.

Cupping will often leave a mark form red to purple depending on the congestion or stagnation this is not painful and will disappear within a few hours or a few days and does not leave any marks or scaring on your skin.
