THE SCIENCE

The traditional ancient practice of cupping employs the localized use of negative pressure (vacuum) on the skin. Gentle, controlled suction is used to release tension in muscle tissue and vastly increase local circulation of blood and fluids. Healthy circulation is restored to the treated areas, creating space for oxygen, cells and nutrients for faster recovery.

ORIGINS

Some of the earliest recorded uses of cupping date back to the Chinese Han Dynasty. Though this therapy has been used in China for thousands of years, ancient medical texts in Egypt and Greece also indicate cupping as a common remedy.

Cupping originally used cattle horns or bamboo. During the 20th century, glass cups were developed and the ancient practice spread across the world. Today, cupping is mainly recommended for the treatment of pain, gastrointestinal disorders, lung diseases (especially chronic cough and asthma), and improving the body’s circulation.
