The ancient art of cupping has been utilized by healers and lay people in many cultures. Cupping is a suction technique designed to pull toxin build-up and muscle spasm from the body’s deeper tissue to the surface of the skin. Physical pain implies a blockage in the flow of energy through a particular area. Utilizing cupping techniques we are able, by vacuum or suction, to pull the blockage out of the deeper tissue and move it to the skin’s surface.
Cupping is an extraordinary technique, and its effects are immediate. The healing process may be shortened by weeks or even months by using cupping, a method that manually removes the energy blockage in ways that acupuncture needles cannot.
