What is Cupping?

Cupping is an ancient technique performed in both Asia and the West. The process traditionally uses glass jars, heated to create a vacuum, and placed on the upper back to relieve acute illnesses such as colds and fevers. Cupping can also be done all over the body to invigorate the flow of Qi and to relieve tension and pain. It is often used for treating upper and lower back ache, chronic nausea & vomiting, sciatica, frozen shoulder, cellulite, menstrual imbalances, relaxation, stress reduction and many more...

If cupping is deemed necessary for your condition, it is generally included in an acupuncture visit. A patient can also come in separately for a cupping treatment if he/she wishes.
