CUPPINGART_final

Cupping therapy utilizes glass or plastic cups and a vacuum to create suction on the body surface.  Cups are moved over the skin using gliding, shaking, popping and rotating techniques while gently pulling up on the cup, and are stationed for a short time to facilitate joint mobilization or soft tissue release.  This suction can reach deep into the soft tissue or can work superficially to pull inflammation and toxins toward the surface so that the skin and lymphatic system can readily eliminate them.
