Cupping is a method of Traditional Chinese Medicine where a partial vacuum is created inside a cup, placed on the skin. The negative pressure draws up the skin and underlying tissue. It stimulates blood flow in the area, relieves congestion and inflammation and eliminates toxins. Cupping is recommended for treatment of pain, gastrointestinal disorders, asthma, chronic cough, and many more. Ask your practitioner if cupping treatment is right for you.
