Cupping

Cupping

Cupping is one of TCM’s oldest and most traditional treatments. It is often used to heal swollen, painful or stiff joints and it can also be used to clear a head cold.

 

 

In the cupping procedure a glass jar is applied to the patient’s skin and as the pressure of the jar is reduced (either by heat or suction) vital energy is freed which helps the body to work more efficiently. Cupping is particularly effective in improving blood circulation, performing deep tissue repair and treating areas of the body that have been affected by pain.

Sessions typically last about 20 minutes and Cupping can be added in as a complimentary extra when combined with Acupuncture and Full Massage.
