Cupping therapy

Ancestral technique to decongest an area of the body

Suction cup therapy

The suction cups consist in creating a local suction in order to decongest an area. And thus circulate the Qi again.

The method consists in applying small containers, often glass, of different sizes and whose entrance is less wide than the bottom, on the skin.

The fire cupping are installed using the buckling technique:

  • an alcohol swab is ignited and passed inside the suction cup to produce negative pressure. Then we place it on a specific area of your body.

In some cases there may be contraindications, for example for:

  • people on anticoagulant therapy

  • weak people

  • Etc.

This technique is complementary with acupuncture, massage and chinese herbs
