What's Cupping? We have seen that cupping therapy has been applied by Olympics athletes for recouping after competing. Cupping Therapy is a natural healing treatment in which plastic cups are placed on skin to create vacuum suction to increase blood circulation flow and metabolism. Cupping Massage is well known to mange acute & chronic pain, restore comfort & mobility and more. Cupping Therapy is clinically proven to reduce inflammation, release toxins (lymphatic drainage and detox), relax stiff muscles, relieve back, shoulder, neck tension & joint pain, arthritis, fibromyalgia, clear colon blockages, activate the skin, clear spider veins, stretch marks and scar reduction. They are best used for stationary cupping. Not recommended for gliding cupping that requires technique and experience. Directions of use: 1. Cupping may not be for everyone. Cupping is absolutely prohibited in patients with hematological diseases, such as hemophilia, leukemia, pernicious anemia. Don't use cupping on patients with heart diseases, high blood pressure, tumor, pregnant women, menstruation, coma or convulsions. 2. Thoroughly clean skin and remove body hair before cupping. Excessive body hair will result in weak suction. *Bruise Warning: if you leave the cup on any area for longer than 10 minutes, it may leave purple hickey marks. Use less suction or shorter time instead. CAUTION: Cupping may cause skin to turn red, blue or purple, especially if there is an injury or energetic blockage in the area that was cupped. The bruising or discoloration is rarely painful and is temporary, but can last anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks.
