Cupping or Suction Cup Therapy has been around for more than 5000 years - invented before acupuncture and originally Water Buffalo horns were used. This ancient method of alternative medicine is a time-honoured treatment that remains favoured by millions of people worldwide because it's safe, comfortable and remarkably effective for most health disorders.

Cupping is a mild vacuum inside glass or plastic cup that is placed on the skin. The vacuum effect of the cups creates suction that softens tissues and increases the circulation of chi, blood, and fluids. By stimulating the skin and underlying muscles, it helps release stubborn knots and area-specific toxins that have accumulated and encourages circulation of both blood and lymph vessels.

Cupping has also been found to affect the body up to four inches into the tissues, causing tissues to release toxins, activate the lymphatic system, clear colon blockages, help activate and clear the veins, arteries and capillaries, activate the skin, clear stretch marks and improve varicose veins. Cupping, the technique, is very useful and very safe.

After your treatment, you will immediately feel the results. You will feel a lot looser and the muscular pain will be relieved quite considerably or eliminated completely. The feeling of sore, aching muscles will be replaced with a deep feeling of relaxation and well-being.
