Why cupping is so effective



Cupping Therapy increases blood flow, speeding up metabolism in the soft tissues – increasing available nutrients and cleansing toxins, pesticides, acids, pathogenic factors (viruses) stagnant blood and lymph.

Cupping Therapy promotes healing through pain reduction and deep relaxation depressing the "fight or flight" stress reaction.

The pulling effect created by the suction inside the cups deeply massages muscles pulling soft tissues away from the bone structure eliminating knots and muscle spasms, helping the body to structurally realign itself in a similar way to deep tissue work.

Fire cupping

This method is good for expelling colds and pathogenic factors.  It is also good for people with cold conditions.   

Cupping is a strong treatment so it's sometimes not appropriate for everyone and it's important to have an assessment first before deciding whether cupping - mild/medium or strong, moving, flash, suction or fire glass cups is most helpful for you.
