Therapeutic cupping is an ancient method used around the world, notably in ancient Egypt, China, and the Middle East. I use a mixture of modern cups including glass "fire" cups and silicone cups for the reduction of pain and symptoms for illness as well as injury recovery and health maintenance. I use styles that can or may not leave cupping marks. Cupping marks are not bruising, as there is no damage to blood vessels or trauma to the tissues. In stead, stagnant fluids are brought to the surface for the lymphatic system to clear. Cupping is commonly used for colds and flus, pain and stiffness, breaking up scar tissue, relaxation, and chronic illnesses such as high blood pressure and digestive complaints. Cupping alone is non-invasive and can be combined with acupuncture, moxibustion and other therapies. It often is most effective in a series of treatments.
