Cupping Therapy

Cupping is one of the oldest methods of traditional Chinese medicine.  The earliest recorded use of cupping dates to the early fourth century, when the noted herbalist Ge Hong wrote about a form of cupping in A Handbook of Prescriptions.

It involves placing of glass or plastic cups on the body.  By changing the pressure inside the cup,  the skin and the superficial layer of the muscle is drawn in and a suction is created.

Depending on the condition treated the cups will be placed on different parts of the body and retained from 5 to 20 minutes.

How Cupping Works…

Drawing up the skin and the superficial layers of muscles is believed to open up the skin’s pores, which helps to stimulate the flow of blood, restores the proper flow of qi to the effected area, breaks up obstructions, and creates a way for toxins to be drawn out of the body.
