What is Cupping Therapy?

Cupping therapy has been used in traditional Middle Eastern & Chinese medical therapies for thousands of years. Cups are used to create suction on the skin, increasing circulation, lymphatic flow, muscle tensions and inflammation.

Benefits of Cupping Therapy

1.  Pain Reduction

It is believed that cupping stimulate pain receptors which lead to increase the frequency of impulses, therefore ultimately leading to closure of the pain gates resulting in pain reduction

 

2.  Strengthening Immunity and Defense

  •     Increasing the flow of lymph through the lymphatic system 
  •     Cupping activates our complement immune system

It also decreases abnormal immune cells such as serum IgE and IL-2 levels and increases serum C3 levels which are found to be abnormal in the immune system

Activation of immune system by cupping might explain its various effects including therapeutic outcomes in patients with autoimmune disease

 

3.  Detoxification 

  •     This theory addresses the removal of toxic substances from the affected area where the cups are applied. 
  •     The flow of blood tends to breakup obstructions and creates an avenue for toxins to be drawn out of the body

The increase of blood flow may promote the release of toxins and wastes, improves the local nutrition state, and finally boosts the metabolism and supporting the healthy aspect and eliminating the pathogenic factors

"Cupping is such a lost art! It allows the patient to relax and heal. By combining relaxation, with deep tissue massage and lymphatic  movement we allow the body to do what does best...heal."
