Cupping has been used in Chinese Medicine for hundreds of years with many known health benefits. The cups we use are made of plastic with a pump used to create a vacuum. Cups can be made of many materials but plastic, silicone and glass are the most common.
The cups are placed on specific areas of the body, suction is then applied to draw the skin into the cup. This creates a localised increase in blood flow within the target area. The cups are placed for 5 – 15 minutes either in a stagnant position or may be glided across the skin surface creating a stretching effect.
Cupping has many uses, including;
- Increased blood flow to a localised area
- Decrease tightness in superficial connective tissue and muscles
- Pain relief and decreased inflammation
- Aid in warming an area for effective massage
- Relaxing effect on the body
After a treatment, circular patches where the cups were placed will be notable. These are pain free and will subside over a few days.
