Cupping is the oldest and most globally practiced medical treatment in human history. By creating suction and negative pressure, this therapy releases rigid soft tissue, drains excess fluids and toxins, loosens adhesions, lifts connective tissue, and brings blood flow to stagnant skin and muscles.
The cup is positioned over the treatment area and a vacuum is created by reducing the pressure inside the cup, which then stretches the tissue up into the cup. When the pores of the tissue expand, it discharges some wastes and toxins; the rest is then more easily flushed through the body’s circulatory and lymphatic systems.
Cupping has remarkable effects on:
• Chronic gastrointestinal disorders
• Poor circulation
• Sports injuries
• Nervous tension
• Chronic headache
• Menstrual problems
Contraindications for Cupping Therapy:
• Broken bones
• Slipped discs
• Organ failure
• Those undergoing cancer therapies
