Cupping Therapy is the method of using glass or plastic cups to create localized pressure by a vacuum.
The Chinese have been using this technique since ancient times by using heat inside glass or bamboo cups.
The suction from the cups can penetrate deep into your tissues causing the tissues to release harmful toxins. It triggers the lymphatic system, clears the blood vessels, and stretches and activates the skin.
Cupping therapy has been found in ancient records dating back 3500 years and is still used today.
In this office, cupping therapy involves the application of glass cups and heat to create a vacuum effect on specific areas of the body in order to promote circulation, relieve pain, and revitalize tissues. The appearance of a “reddish, elevated, millet-like skin rash’ (aka petechiae) results.
It is important to note, that this modality does not involve burning of the skin.
