Cupping Massage
Cupping is a technique of increasing blood flow.

Cupping refers to an ancient traditional Chinese medicinal practice in
which a cup is applied to the skin and the pressure in the cup is
reduced (by using change in heat or by suctioning out air), so that the
skin and superficial muscle layer is drawn into and held in the cup. In
some cases, the cup may be moved while the suction of skin is active,
causing a regional pulling of the skin and muscle (the technique is
called gliding cupping).

It can help relieve pain and chronic fatigue; activate the
lymphatic system; clear colon blockages, help activate and
clear the veins, arteries and capillaries; activate the skin;
clear stretch marks and remove cellulite.  

Cupping can help relieve impotence and maintain erection,
restore sexual potential and increase male and female
fertility.

Cupping draws blood to the surface area of the body where the cups
are applied. This increase blood flow relieves muscle cramping,
hardening of tissue and associated pain. Because specific reflex zones
on the back, abdomen and legs correspond to organs, cupping can be
used to promote the workings of, for example, the kidneys, gallbladder,
liver or lungs. Cupping can also mobilize the immune system.

The treatment creates
temporary, localized bruises, which - like all
bruises - activate the body's defensive cells to heal the bruised area,
but they will disappeare within a week. Dry cupping is primarily
used for people with a weak constitution and low blood pressure; it is
never for patients with high blood pressure. Bloody cupping helps clear
the body of accumulated irritants that cause inflammation.

Cupping is safe, and
free from side effects

The therapist palpates the
patient's back to find any
hardening or swelling, and then
applies up to 12 cupping glasses
to those places.
The cupping glasses remain on
the skin for
10-15 minutes.
