What is it?

Cupping Therapy- Cupping is a type of alternative therapy that originated in China. It involves placing cups on the skin to create suction, cupping increases blood circulation to the area where the cups are placed.

1. viz. weak/light cupping

3. moving cupping

4. needle cupping

5. moxa/hot needle cupping

6. empty/flash cupping

7. herbal cupping

8. water cupping

9.full/bleeding cupping

How Is It Performed?

During a cupping treatment, a cup is placed on the skin and then heated or suctioned onto the skin. ... When the hot cup is placed on your skin, the air inside the cup cools and creates a vacuum that draws the skin and muscle upward into the cup.(PLEASE DON'T ATTEMPT TO DO THIS AT HOME,CONSULT A PROFESSIONAL FIRST!!!!!)

What are the Health Benefits?

The suction and negative pressure provided by cupping can loosen muscles,encourage blood flow,and sedate the nervous system,(makes it a great treatment for high blood pressure).Cupping is used to relieve back and neck pains, stiff muscles,anxiety,fatigue ,migraines,rheumatism, and even cellulite.
