Cupping

Cupping

Cupping is the practice of applying suction at the skins surface using an array of techniques to treat dysfunction throughout the body. Pain caused by congestion or restriction of tissue can be alleviated by the withdrawing effect of this modality, rather than the downward pressure adapted by other therapies. When applied by an experienced therapist, cupping can reduce chronic pain, release muscle tension, improve range of motion, stimulate circulation and waste removal enabling tissue rehabilitation. Cupping can also be utilised in the treatment of the digestive, reproductive, nervous, respiratory and circulatory systems.
