Cupping is a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine that dates back as far as 300 AD.
Specifically designed silicone cups are applied to the skin by means of suction. This creates a negative pressure that increases circulation 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 left in place for up to 3-5 minutes. We also glide cups along the skin to reduce restrictions in connective tissue. This known as slip cupping
Circular Skin marking is common after the stationary cups are removed. Everybody heals differently so the marks can last a few days to a few weeks.
