Cupping Therapy

" a tender dance on the skin, invoking a passionate flow that embraces both the senses and the soul".

Cupping Treatment

Cupping therapy, with historical roots in ancient Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern cultures, is documented in the Ebers Papyrus, one of the world's oldest medical texts, dating back to 1550 B.C. In a typical session, glass cups are warmed by igniting a cotton ball soaked in alcohol, creating a vacuum when placed on the skin due to the absence of oxygen.

Clinically, cupping therapy is employed either independently or in conjunction with acupuncture and tuina therapy. The duration of cup placement varies (5 to 20 minutes) based on the ailment and body constitution. Multiple cups may be applied simultaneously to different areas, sometimes preceded by medicated or herbal oils to enhance movement along acupoints or meridians.

In China, cupping primarily addresses conditions like bronchitis, asthma, arthritis, gastrointestinal disorders, and certain pain types.  Moving Cupping, used to alleviate stress and depression and support burnout patients, aims to rebalance the body and mind, promoting metabolism and eliminating toxins.
