What is Cupping Therapy?
Cupping is a therapeutic technique rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) that involves placing cups on the skin to create suction. This suction mobilizes blood flow, promotes healing, and releases tension, offering a unique and effective approach to holistic well-being.
How Does it Work?
During a cupping session, cups are placed on specific areas of the body, creating a vacuum that draws the skin and superficial muscle layer into the cup. This suction promotes increased blood circulation, reduces inflammation, and stimulates the body’s natural healing processes. Cupping leaves circular marks due to the suction, known as cupping marks, which normally go away in a few days.
