Cupping uses plastic cups to apply to the surface of the body and create a negative pressure inside the cups.

Q: What is cupping?

A: A method of therapy used in China for thousands of years where plastic cups are used to apply to the surface of the body and create a negative pressure inside the cup with suction in order to increase local inflammation and blood flow to the area to aid in the healing process.

 

Q: What should I expect from the treatment?

A: Generally, a pulling sensation due to the suction of the cups will be felt and most of the time it is painless. A purplish to reddish bruise will appear on the treated area due to the local congestion but will normally disappear in a few days. Therapeutic indications of cupping are to promote the free flow of qi and blood in the meridians, reduce cold dampness, and eliminate pain.
