What is Cupping?

Our health and wellbeing (immune system) are totally reliant on the movement of blood, Qi (energy) and body fluids (hormones, lymphatic fluid etc). Oriental Medicine teaches us that all pain is due to stagnation of these systems.  Due to the wonderful pulling power and the heat that the cups offer, it is dramatic in its reduction of pain hence our feeling of wellbeing.  This stagnation can be a result of injury, stress, a lack of blood, Qi or even an invasion of cold in the body and joints.  Whatever the cause cupping can be applied to specific points as used in acupuncture, or with the application of massage to the dysfunctional area, you will start to feel warmth and a reduction of pain.

When can it be used?

We use cupping in a variety of ways, it can be incorporated into a back, neck and shoulder massage, used on the hips and legs to reduce spasms or excess fluid retention, or it can be used on the back helping the spine, nerves and meridians to flow more freely without restrictions of tight muscles.
