Cupping is an ancient technique of Traditional Chinese Medicine(TCM) in which glass cups are placed on the surface of the skin to create suction.
During cupping treatment, the local underlying tissue is raised, or sucked, partway into the cup. This process usually lasts 10 minutes. The purpose of cupping is to boost circulation, relief pain, remove “heat” and pull out the toxins that linger in your body’s tissues.
In our clinic, cupping is often used in conjunction with acupuncture to treat:
