Cupping

Cupping is an ancient technique which has been thoroughly modernised and now uses plastic cups with suction valves that pull the skin gently giving one of the best deep-tissue therapies available.  The pressure the cups create draws Blood and Qi to the affected area accelerating healing, improving circulation, releasing blockages, relieving muscle tension and reducing inflammation.

Cupping is also considered valuable for the lungs; it can clear congestion from a common cold or help to control a person’s asthma. In fact, respiratory conditions are one of the most common maladies that cupping is used to relieve. Three thousand years ago, in the earliest Chinese documentation of cupping, it was recommended for the treatment of pulmonary tuberculosis.

Cups usually leave circular bruises on the skin, but these are not painful and clear after a few days.
