Cupping Therapy

When the well’s dry, we know the worth of water.

What is CUPPING Therapy?

Cupping is also known as negative pressure massage. It lifts the tissues into the cup through suction and in doing so, creates space within the tissues. This enables more movement of blood and lymph in the local area.

Cupping is a manual technique that has been used since the beginning of human existence to release Blood, body fluids, inorganic substances, bacteria, metabolic waste, and more from beneath the skins’ surface. It has been used for millennia as pain relief, to speed up the recovery from cold and lung conditions, and to release stale Blood from the body.

The treatment can be very stimulating for the receiver, and yet very relaxing. SO, it is also excellent for stress relief.

Cupping also draws the Blood to the local area, so we can potentially help to stimulate the Parasympathetic Nervous System by bringing the Blood back to the center of the body.

In recent times, cupping has had a mass resurgence due to the media attention that it has been gaining. We have seen many people who are in the public eye showing up on camera with visible cupping marks on their bodies. It has created a buzz, both positive and negative due to the reactions that some people have to cupping marks.

The marks look like sore bruises, and sometimes what is being seen are very extreme reactions. Typically, cupping marks range from light pink to dark red/purple, again, in extreme cases.
