What is cupping therapy?
Cupping therapy is an ancient Chinese therapy which involves placing cups on the skin in a way to create suction. The suction causes the skin and superficial muscles to gently lift into the cup, instead of a downwards pressure which a massage provides. The pressure which is created from the cups is believed to help blood flow and improve energy flow throughout the body.
At Marston health and Beauty we use a form of Dry Cupping which doesn’t use heat to create the suction. The cups use a specially designed pump to serve as a vacuum to give more control over the amount of suction applied to the skin.
Benefits of Cupping Therapy
There are many benefits to cupping ranging from relaxation and improved energy flow to pain relief. This is due to the skin being the bodies largest organ, reflecting and showing all imbalances throughout the body.
