What is cupping?
Traditional cupping involves the use of a glass cup (specifically made for cupping treatment), putting a flaming cotton ball into the cup to draw out the oxygen and then quickly placing the cup on the skin.
The cup then easily suctions onto the skin due to the lack of oxygen inside. Plastic and silicon cups may also be used for this type of treatment because they do not require the fire and alcohol. This makes them easier to work with, but it’s obviously way less fun.
Why not give cupping a try?
You enjoy seeing your massage therapist on a regular basis, but the thought of having needles stuck in you just isn’t as appealing. Maybe you’ve thought about getting cupping or maybe it’s a brand new concept, so why not give it a try? You may just discover a whole new type of treatment you enjoy.
