Traditional Chinese medicine has long believed that the blockage of Qi, or vital energy (such as fluid, lymph and blood) is the main cause of pain.
Chinese cupping is therefore a method of breaking up the blockage to restore the body’s natural flow of energy.
The suction and negative pressure provided by cupping can loosen muscles, encourage blood flow, and sedate the nervous system.
I enjoy the use of Cupping therapy to relieve back and neck pains and stiff muscles.
