Cupping

Cupping and Gua Sha Treaments:

Cupping Treatment

 

 

Cupping is performed by introducing heat into a glass cup and creating vacuum which produces a suction effect. It increases blood circulation to the local area, relaxes muscle tension and releases pain causing factors.
 

 

Gua Sha Treatment

 

 

 

Gua Sha follows similar principles to cupping. A Chinese spoon is scraped over particular parts of the body to release stagnation and tension. Mostly applied to the neck, back and shoulders, it often brings instant relief from pain and discomfort.
