Cupping

What is cupping?

  • Cupping is a therapy designed to stimulate the flow of blood and Qi within the superficial muscle layers.
  • It is used for:
    • sore muscles
    • tension
    • neck pain
    • the common cold
  • Small glass or plastic 'cups' are placed over specific areas on the body and a vacuum is created under the cup using heat or suction.
  • The cups may be moved over an affected area or left in place.
  • There may be some slight redness, but no need for alarm it will quickly dissipate.
