I have used cupping recently with great results for treating chronic neck pain and muscle spasming tension in conjunction my acupuncture and herb treatment program.

Cupping is a technique where glass cups are heated inside and then quickly placed on the skin of the affected regions; upper back, low back, etc…

As the air inside the cup cools down, a vacuum is created gently drawing and sucking up the skin.

Cupping offers a great way to draw up toxins from underneath the skin and help lymph and blood circulate more freely clearing away toxins while bringing in nourishing oxygen and blood for healing and repair!

Cupping can be use to treat:

  • Menstrual pain
  • Fertility issues
  • Muscle tension and spasm
  • Colds and flu

For additional info you can check out our previous blog on cupping and improved performance with Olympic athletes!
