Cupping therapy is an ancient, Chinese, deep-tissue healing technique that’s simple, effective and non-invasive. It is used on its own or in conjunction with Acupuncture treatment.
How does it work?
Cupping uses glass cups on various points around the body, usually on the back. These create a vacuum suction on the skin and as they are gently moved around, the tension helps regulate the flow of blood to the joints and muscles in the affected area. This in turn encourages energy to flow freely around the body.
How does it help?
Cupping opens up the pores of the skin to release toxins, and stimulate the sensory nerves. It is suitable for treating pain, digestive, circulatory and respiratory conditions and skin disorders. At Cambourne Acupuncture we offer the ten classic methods of cupping, including cupping over acupuncture needles and Moxa cupping, where warming herbs are applied to acupuncture needles and then cupped.
