What is Cupping?
Cupping is an ancient form of alternative medicine, cupping has been used by people all over the world for centuries. Chinese medicine practitioners suction small cups to affected areas of the body to release stagnation and congestion.
These cups are then left to sit for approximately 10 minutes, while each cup applies direct pressure to tight muscles and irritated nerves. Cupping relaxes muscles, improves blood flow and reduces inflammation, resulting in pain relief, improved mood, increased energy, and a boost in immune functions.
Many patients report relief from migraines, fatigue, and joint and back pain while enjoying increased energy and mobility.
