Cupping therapy has been a standard therapeutic treatment in almost every culture in the world.
The first recorded evidence of cupping came from Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphic drawings. The Papyrus was the first published medical text (1550-2200BC) discussed the benefits of cupping, as well as cupping methods.
In Ancient Chinese Medicine, cupping was referenced as early as 280 BC. Cupping therapy has been a standard therapeutic treatment in almost every culture in the world.
Cupping is a very safe and effective treatment modality that improves blood circulation, and lymphatic flow in the body. It is a great tool to help with pain relief and has no demonstrable negative effects on the body when practiced by a properly informed practitioner.
Cupping works by creating a partial vacuum (aka negative pressure massage cupping) by adhering a glass, silicon, or plastic cup to the skin. When qi is stuck in the body and cannot flow pain results. Cupping helps break up the blockage to restore the body’s natural flow of qi and promote relaxation.
