Although it was the Olympic athletes who launched Cupping into the spotlight this past summer, Fire Cupping offers a myriad of health benefits for every body. So, what is it and why should you try it?
Fire cupping can be thought of as an inverse massage. Instead of pushing down on tissue, the cups use negative pressure (suction) to pull up skin, tissue and muscle. This process helps remove toxins and cell waste in the muscles and joints, decreases inflammation and improves blood flow, qi and lymph movement in the body.
Fire cupping often works wonders for patients with the flu, colds, cough, back and muscle pain, poor circulation, and anxiety. It works as a detoxification aid, improving circulation and stimulating the lymphatic system.
Most often used in conjunction with your Acupuncture session, Fire Cupping can be booked as a stand alone session. Whether you're looking for a quick recovery after an intense workout, fighting off a cold, or needing a little detoxification boost, you will LOVE Fire Cupping!
