Cupping



What is Cupping?

Cupping is a process which uses negative pressure to lift the connective and muscle tissue. During this procedure, blood, oxygen, and, therefore, energy, are able to travel freely through this tissue where before it may have been blocked. In Chinese Medicine, pain is considered the blockage of Qi, best translated as the body’s Vital Energy. Cupping is just one of the tools we have to treat pain by helping the body’s flow of energy to flow smoothly throughout the musculoskeletal system.
