CUPPING THERAPY

Ancient Remedies advance applications

Cupping a technique used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It involves

placing cups with heated air on the skin. Once the air inside cools, the skin

under the cup experiences a suction effect. The cups are usually left on the

body for 5-15 min before being removed.

Cupping draws more blood into an area, which can relieve muscle tension through improved blood flow. It also improves oxygen supply, which aids in optimum function of the body part.

After treatment, the skin under the cup may become bruised and discoloured. It can take up to 7-10 days for the colour to return to normal.
