|Cupping is an ancient technique that involves placing jars on the skin, suctioning out the air and creating a vacuum. The underlying tissue is raised, creating a negative energy flow which can counteract the current state of stagnation. Cupping affects the body up to four inches into the tissues, causing tissues to release toxins, activate the lymphatic system, clear colon blockages, helps activate and clear the veins, arteries and capillaries, clear stretch marks and improve varicose veins. It often gets good results for patients with the flu, back pain, muscle pain, red itchy skin conditions, allergies, fevers,
aches and pains. A single cup or multiple cups are used on acupuncture points to break up local congestion and relieve pain.
