Cupping

Cupping has been used for generations to expel and release pathogens. Common in Europe and Pacifica traditions, mothers used to cup their children to alleviate flu and body aches.

Using flamed cotton bud, quickly inserted into a glass cup then removed, it creates a vacuum within the cup. The cup is then immediately placed on your body. This mostly feels tight and relaxing at the same time. “Pleasurable pain” is what most people call it. Common sites for cupping are the neck and shoulders, back, buttocks, hamstring and calves. The cups can be stationary or gently slide, with prior application of oil.
Cupping can be used solely or in conjunction with acupuncture and massage.

What is cupping good for?

  • Increases blood circulation. Cups are used to bring more red blood cell to the surface and speed the healing process
  • Alleviate muscle pain and tension by releasing the fascia (connective tissue)
  • Releases toxins and pathogens from the body. Common flu, shingles etc
  • Profound relaxation for stressed, anxious and high-strung people.
  • Combined with other methods, cupping can bring hidden disharmony from the depth to the surface of the body. This presents as marks that stay 3-5 days on the body. The marks are not painful, and are a useful diagnostic tool for the practitioner, to ascertain the type of disharmony (heat, cold, stagnation, deficiency or excess).
