What is Cupping?
Cupping therapy is an age-old method that involves placing specially designed cups on the skin to create a gentle suction. This suction promotes increased blood flow, relieves muscle tension, and encourages the body's natural healing processes. 

How Does Cupping Work?
During a cupping session, the therapist places cups on specific areas of the body, creating a vacuum seal. This gentle suction lifts the skin and underlying tissues, creating space for increased blood flow. The cups may remain stationary or be moved across the skin in a gliding motion, depending on the therapeutic goals.

Is cupping therapy painful?

While some people may experience mild discomfort during cupping therapy, it is generally not painful. The sensation is often described as a tight pulling or pressure on the skin.

Are there any side effects of cupping therapy?

Side effects of cupping therapy are typically mild and temporary. These may include bruising, skin irritation, or mild discomfort. However, serious side effects are rare when the therapy is performed by a trained professional.
