Cupping is a healing technique that has been used for over 3000 years as part of Traditional Chinese Medicine. While ancient, it is being used more and more often today because of its many health benefits. Celebrities such as Gwyneth Paltrow and Michael Phelps have helped bring it to the forefront.
Cupping is an excellent way to clear stagnation in the body and reduce pain by allowing the natural flow of energy to return. It works by loosening muscles, encouraging blood flow, getting rid of blockages, and assisting your body in releasing the build of toxins.
It is a very effective treatment for many muscular conditions such as muscle spasms, back pain, neck and shoulder tension, sports injuries, etc.
Cupping is also very effective for respiratory conditions such as asthma, colds, etc. to release congestion.
Amongst other conditions that cupping benefits are constipation, indigestion, fatigue, and even cellulite!
