TCM Cupping Therapy
Duration: 30 minutes
TCM Cupping focuses on key pressure points to release & stimulate the ‘Qi’ energy in our body. Cupping is an
ancient form of medicine to treat symptoms caused by local congestion or excess body heat
trapped in a particular body part. A partial vacuum is created in a cupping jar, usually by means of heat, which
is then applied directly to the skin. The underlying tissue is drawn up into the jar forming an area of blood stasis. This appears to bruise the area, or at least turn it bright red. The amount of dark red or even purple blood drawn to the surface indicates the degree of stagnation.
