Chinese Cupping

Contemporary Cupping methods have been a crucial part of Traditional Chinese Medicine for thousands of years. It's efficacy has been historically documented and is still widely practiced also in Europe, Russia, South America, Africa, Australia and the Middle East. Chinese Cupping is unmatched in speed and efficacy when it comes to lymphatic stimulation and drainage and myofascial reprogramming. Chinese Cupping releases rigid soft tissue, drains excess fluids and toxins, loosens adhesions, lifts connective tissue and brings blood flow to stagnant skin and muscles. 

Common Misconceptions

What does Chinese Cupping actually do?

Unrestricted blood flow throughout the body is crucial for optimum health. Due to many factors such as injuries, repetitive overuse of muscles, build up of lactic acid, the introduction of agents such as carcinogens, pesticides, steriods, antibiotics, hormones, aluminum and nitrates that the human biosystem was not designed to deal with can lead to the build up of these and other toxins ultimately blocking and constricting healthy blood flow to the skin, muscles and other structures creating pain and dysfunction. Chinese Cupping uses a variety of different cups and techniques to create Negative Pressure, or suction, pulling these toxins from deep within the soft tissues "to the surface", closer to the skin, so that they may properly be disposed of by the body's Lymphatic and Circulatory Systems. Opposite of compression and pressure techniques, Negative Pressure also allows for the pulling, stretching and reprogramming of the dense and restricting myofascia, or connective tissue, that lines our entire body.
