Vacuum Cupping Therapy

Vacuum cupping therapy, commonly known as cupping, is a traditional therapeutic technique that involves placing cups on the skin to create suction. This suction helps to increase blood flow, relax muscles, and promote the flow of energy (qi) in the body. It is used for various purposes, including relieving pain, reducing inflammation, improving circulation, and promoting relaxation.

During a cupping therapy session, the practitioner places cups on specific areas of the body and creates a vacuum by using a manual pump. The cups are left in place for a few minutes, or the practitioner may move them around the skin (referred to as dynamic cupping) to target different areas.

Cupping therapy can result in temporary discoloration or bruising on the skin due to the suction, but this is typically not painful and fades within a few days.
