Cupping is the term applied to a technique that uses small glass cups or bamboo jars as suction devices that are placed on the skin (generally the dorsal area) to disperse and break up stagnation and congestion by drawing congested blood to the surface, thus restoring the flow of Qi.

It is often used in conjunction with acupuncture but is effective as a stand alone treatment. We have home kits available as well and with minimal instruction you can perform cupping therapy in the comfort of your own home. It's relaxing, fun and rejuvenating!
