cupping helping with lungs issues, loosing up tight back muscles


Cupping is an ancient form of healing familiar to many cultures.It involves placing either silicone, plastic or glass heated cups on the skin to detoxify the body and increase circulation. When there is a lot of tightness in the muscles, oxygen and blood flow are significantly reduced, resulting in aches and pains. Cups help to release tightness and tension by moving blood up the surface, resulting in old stagnated blood discharge and nourishment of the area with new blood and oxygen.​ 


What does a treatment look like?

The cups are placed on one area of the body, usually the back, but it can be done in other achy parts, too. In about 20 minutes, some blood will come up to the surface, leaving a mark on the skin once the cups are removed. The mark colour can vary from light pink to dark brown, and it can eventually bruise and last a few days or a week, according to the level of blood stagnation. The treatment does not cause pain but a sense of release and relaxation.​
