Cautions and Contraindications

Cupping is like an inverted massage - it applies gentle suction to pull the skin, fascia and muscle upward instead of applying direct pressure to the muscles.  It helps loosen tight muscles and smooth blood flow, leaving the body feeling relaxed.

Cupping can be combined with Acupuncture in one treatment or used alone.

Cupping is a modality of Traditional Chinese Medicine that involves placing thick, durable cups on the skin surface along the acupuncture meridians lines. The inside of the cup is heated to create a mild vacuum that will cause suction on the skin.  ​​

The suction helps to stimulate blood flow in the local area, break up any stagnations and increase circulation and warmth on the affected area.​
