Project Description

Chinese Cupping Therapy is an ancient folk medicine and forms part of traditional Chinese Medicine. The method behind cupping is to create a vacuum inside a vessel, which is placed on the skin, thereby generating a suction within the cup. The effect of suction is to create local congestion of blood and to release connective tissue adhesions.

Most common conditions for usage include:

  • Back pain
  • Muscular tightness
  • Muscular spasm
  • Stiff neck and shoulders
  • ITB syndrome
  • Connective tissue release
