Cupping therapy

Cupping therapy has been found in ancient records dating back 3500 years and it is still used today by many alternative medicine practitioners.

Chinese Medicine Practitioners use glass cups to create a vacuum suction and stimulate blood flow to the superficial muscle layers, removing lactic acid and other toxins.

Ancient Chinese medicine have believed that the body contains "Meridians". These meridians are pathways in the body which the energy of life called Qi ("chi") flows through. It flows through every body part, tissue, and organ.

Cupping therapy is mainly performed on one's back because there are five meridians on your back. When these meridians are opened, the internal energy is able to flow through the whole body.

Another healing aspect of cupping therapy is through the release of toxins in your body.

The suction from the cups can penetrate deep into your tissues causing the tissues to release harmful toxins.

It triggers the lymphatic system, clears the blood vessels, and stretches and activates the skin. 

If you  have respiratory problems, cough, wheezing, chronic muscle pain, tight and knotted muscles that seem to never loosen up even with deep tissue massage, this treatment is for you.
