During our Cupping Therapy, we use the method of using plastic or glass cups to create localized pressure by a vacuum. Cupping therapy has been found in ancient records dating back 3500 years and it is still used today by many acupuncturists. Cupping sets use suction to create the vacuum. The vacuum inside the cups causes the blood to form in the area for detoxification and healing in that area.
A healing aspect of cupping therapy is through the release of toxins in your body. The suction from the cups can penetrate deep into your tissues causing the tissues to release harmful toxins. It triggers the lymphatic system, clears the blood vessels, and stretches and activates the skin.
