Chinese Cupping Therapy

Chinese Cupping Therapy

Chinese Cupping is a specialized treatment which forms part of Traditional Chinese Medicine and can be used to complement other massage treatments. This technique creates a vacuum inside specialized glass cups which are placed on areas of the body to draw up underlying tissue. The suction effect causes local blood pooling in a generalized area to break down adhesive tissue and help remove toxins. Bruising can appear after the cupping treatment; this is normal, especially where there is congestion and stagnation in the muscle tissue.

Some conditions which can be treated with this therapy include:


Muscular tightness or stiffness

Chest congestion/colds

ITB Syndrome (Illio Tibial Band Syndrome)

Rotator Cuff injuries

Muscular spasm
