Cupping is the inverse of massage. Rather than applying pressure to muscles, the suction uses pressure to pull skin, tissue and muscles upward. We often combine cupping and acupuncture in one treatment, but it can also be used alone. There are five meridian lines on the back, and these are where the cups are usually placed. Using these points, cupping can help to align and relax Chi (Life Force Energy), as well as target more specific disorders or imbalances. Cupping has numerous benefits — it can help remove toxins from the body and stimulate the flow of fresh blood, lymph, and Chi to the affected area and throughout the body. It often works well for patients with the flu, colds, coughs, back and muscle pain, poor circulation, anxiety, red itchy skin conditions, allergies, fevers, aches and a myriad other pains.
