Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes; to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being.
Conditions of muscular related disorders such as hypertension, rheumatic conditions ranging from arthritis, sciatica, displaced bones, ligaments and spine, back pain and migraines.
It is a comfortable, safe and effective treatment to alleviate local congestion and stagnation of blood flow: a vacuum is created in glass cups placed on the skin by means of heat and suction which draws up the underlying tissue, removing old stagnating blood and toxins, breaking down adhesions and releasing fascia around the muscles, improving mobility and flexibility right after each treatment.
It can be used as stand alone treatment or combined with massage therapy: different cupping techniques such as flash, localised and moving cupping are used to treat a variety of conditions. Dark circular marks are usually left on the skin typically 3 to 5 days, could be more if the skin type is very fair.
