What is cupping treatment?
Used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for over 2,500 years, cupping treatment enhances circulation, helps relieve pain and pull out any toxins that may be lingering. Cupping treatment benefits both men and women and can also be used on older children.
It acts in the reverse of massage, using suction directly on a point to pull skin, tissue and muscles upwards rather than applying pressure.
How does it work?
I incorporate cupping treatment within an acupuncture treatment when it is required. I heat the air inside the glass before quickly applying it to the body – the heat causes the suction to occur.
The length of cupping treatment depends on what we are seeking to treat and at most you may feel a tight sensation in the area of the cup (many patients have said this is pleasant and relaxing). As cupping treatment benefits are so manyfold, rest assured you will feel lighter and brighter afterwards.
Post- cupping treatment you may find your skin has temporarily turned red, perhaps blue or purple and this can last from a few days to a couple of weeks but it’s rarely painful. To fully experience cupping treatment benefits, please allow sufficient time of rest afterwards for few hours and drink plenty of water to help eliminate drawn toxins.
