Cupping

Cupping is one of the world’s oldest and most widespread therapies. It has been used by many of the world’s ancient cultures.

Cupping though occasionally used alone is usually used alongside acupuncture or Tui Na massage.

Cupping refers to the placing of glass or ceramic cups on the skin when a partial vacuum is created by heat or suction.  There are a variety of different techniques with cupping including sliding, over needle, herbal and water cupping. These different methods are chosen depending on your condition.

Cupping may be beneficial in relieving muscular tension and many of the symptoms related to it, and it is often used to treat colds.
