Cupping Improved Energy Flow

Cupping is a massage modality that finds its roots in traditional Chinese medicine. The practice uses glass cups to create a vacuum seal on areas of the body. The suction created by this seal brings blood to the surface of the skin and is thought to help expel negative energies from the body. Although cupping is not painful, the recipient commonly walks away with circular bruises on the areas where the cups were applied.

In traditional Chinese medicine, cupping is used to improve the energy flow throughout the body. The bruises caused by the procedure are thought to be the negative energy elements coming to the surface and exiting the body. The cups can be placed over the traditional energy collection points, which are also stimulated during acupuncture and shiatsu massage.

A healthy energy flow is thought to improve both the physical and mental well-being of the client.

The bruises caused by the cups will clear in 4 to 5 days, few patients might  develop  mild allergic type reactions or in rare cases blisters on the bruised areas, it all depends on your body’s immune system.
