Cupping therapy is an ancient Chinese form of alternative medicine in which a local suction is created on the skin. A partial vacuum is created in cups placed on the skin either by means of heat or suction.
Our clinic uses old and new adaptations on the cross cultural healing therapy of cupping. We use cups under specific pressures to help restore proper circulation to the body. Cupping additionally removes stagnation (toxicity) from tissues. It can also be used diagnostically to determine the level of congestion.
