Cupping therapy involves creating suction inside glass cups using a flame or a suction device. When the cup is applied to the body, the suction circulates qi and blood to the area to help the body heal. It is mainly used for musculo-skeletal conditions with pain but can also be used for many other ailments such as lung conditions, digestive complaints and the common cold to name a few. Many patients really enjoy cupping and often comment on how good it feels.
