Cupping is a tremendously helpful technique for pain control and many other conditions. The stagnation of the blood and Qi (energy) in the muscles and body tissues will lead to pain and other illnesses.
The technique involves the application of glass(or plastic) cups which adhere to the body through the use of a pump or by heat. The cups are applied over certain points and/or areas of the body. Cupping improves the circulation in these areas resulting in alleviated pain and improvement of underlying health issues.
Cupping helps to relieve:
- alleviates pain
- injuries of the back, shoulder, neck and knees
- warms meridians
- removes stagnation and encourages free flow of blood and Qi
- releases toxins
