Glass cups are heated and applied in different strengths to the required area of the body. This creates a vacuum effect on the skin and underlying muscles, which is said to enhance blood flow by lymphatic circulation.

Cupping also has a direct effect on the muscles releasing tension and breaking adhesions.

Each treatment may address a range of areas depending on the health complaint and is combined with massage and stretching to enhance muscle release. Cupping is an excellent treatment when feeling the cold.

Cupping can be tonifying by increasing energy or sedating depending on the strengths of the cups and the needs of the individual.
