Cupping therapy originated from the traditional Chinese medicine technique of cupping. Cupping technique is basically used in mobilising blood flow to an area in a way that promotes healing. The process of our cupping therapy involves the use of suction on the skin to gently draw the skin tissue into the cup. Cups with oil and a bit of suction may also be moved along the skin to cover broader areas. Bruising can last up to 2 weeks of where the cups have been.
