Cupping involves the suction of a glass cup, performed by creating a vacuum with a flame before being placed on the body. During a Cupping treatment, the skin's pores are opened which helps to stimulate the flow of Blood, adjust the flow of Qi and remove blockages within the meridians. The warming and dispersing actions of Cupping result in a profoundly increased local blood supply to muscles and skin which provides nourishment to the local area and releases tension particularly in areas of muscle rigidity.

Cupping is most commonly performed on the thick musculature on your back although it  can  also  be carried out on other  areas  such  as  the  shoulder  joint.   

During  the cupping treatment, you will feel a deep warming sensation and the skin will turn red, showing that the circulation has been brought to the surface. After the treatment, you may feel deeply relaxed and energised and experience a feeling of  lightness  and flexibility  in  areas  of pain and muscle tension. You may also find that your skin complexion gradually improves, becoming firmer and smoother with a new and healthy glow. 

Cupping has strong therapeutic effects through its warming and dispersing actions and can be used for a wide range of conditions, most commonly being:

  • Musculoskeletal conditions such as pain, soreness or numbness in the neck, shoulder and back

  • Insomnia, anxiety, stress and tiredness

  • Digestive disorders such as indigestion, constipation and IBS

  • Respiratory conditions such as chronic bronchitis, cough and common cold
