Cupping and Gua Sha


Cupping Therapy

Cupping therapy is a form of ancient Chinese medicine in which suction is applied to the skin. This practice is believed to mobilize blood flow to promote healing. Cupping increases blood circulation to the area where the cups are placed. This may relieve muscle tension, which can improve overall blood flow and promote cell repair. It may also help form new connective tissues and create new blood vessels in the tissue. Cupping therapy is also known for creating a full body relaxation and offers many positive psychological benefits. Cupping is generally safe with limited side effects, however you may experience slight discomfort after a session and there are risks for bruising of the skin. You may feel soreness in the treated areas, though you should not feel severe pain.
