What is Cupping?
Cupping therapy is an ancient form of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) where a cup is used to create a vacuum seal on the patient’s skin to dispel stagnation and promote Qi flow. Suction is created using heat (fire) or mechanical devices (hand or electrical pumps).
It is beneficial in addressing respiratory ailments and musculoskeletal conditions.
