Cupping is a therapy in which suction is used on the skin surface.
This causes the tissues to release toxins, activates the lymphatic system, smooths the appearance of cellulite, plus many other benefits.
During a cupping session, the air inside the cup is briefly heated. The cup is then placed rim-side-down against the skin, on a specific point or area where stagnation of blood or lymph may occur. As the air inside the cup cools, it creates a suction, gently pulling the soft tissues slightly into the cup. The cup may remain in one spot to draw blood to that area, or it may be moved along the oiled skin to increase blood circulation through a greater region. This increased blood supply to the local muscles and skin bring nourishment and stimulate the circulatory and lymphatic systems to carry away stagnation and toxins.
All of this is done in a gentle manner that does not irritate or inflame the tissues or muscles of the body; cupping actually draws out inflammation.
