Cupping Therapy involves placing silicone or plastic cups on the skin to create a vacuum by suctioning out the air. The underlying tissue is raised partially into the cup. The purpose of cupping is to enhance blood and lymph circulation, relieve pain, remove toxins and release muscle tension. There are a number of cupping methods. The most common types of cupping used in the clinic are fixed, sliding, and dynamic. The method used varies from patient to patient and the goals that we are trying to achieve.
