Dating back to ancient Egypt and China; Cupping is a form of alternative therapy.
To create a suction on the skin; specifically designed silicone cups are used to create negative pressure.
Circulation is increased to help release tight muscles, reduce inflammation, & promote healing. Cupping therapy can help lower stress, relieve chronic tension, & reduce scar tissue caused by injuries.
Stationary cups are applied to the skin and left in place for 3-5 minutes. Cups are also glided across the skin to reduce restrictions in connective tissue. This is known as slip cupping
Circular skin marking is common after the cups are removed. Everybody heals differently. Cupping marks can last a few days to a few weeks.
