Cupping Therapy

Cupping is an ancient therapy originating in Egypt in 1550BC and then adopted by the Chinese. It is a therapy based on the belief that certain health problems can be caused by stagnant blood and poor energy flow through the body. "Dry" cupping using silicone cups are placed along meridians (acupuncture points) of the body, primarily on the back. By inserting air into the cups a partial vacuum is created. Muscles are stimulated and blood flow is increased. Cupping helps to relieve pain and increase range of motion. Massage with cups is also implemented to create deep myofascial stroking. This is referred to as "Moving Cupping".
