Cupping is an ancient Chinese method that is often used to enhance an acupuncture treatment. It is a therapy designed to stimulate the flow of blood and Qi within the superficial layers. This opens “ The Meridian Pathways” allowing Qi and blood to circulate freely, releasing toxins, muscles relax, and calms the mind, body and spirit. It is used for many ailments including sore muscles, tension, pain and the common allergies and cold. In this therapy, Angie will place small glass “cups” over specific areas on your body. A vacuum is created under the cup using heat or suction. This is often moved over an affected area or left in place for a few minutes. You may leave the office looking like an octopus gave you a big hug. There is no need for alarm. The slight redness or marks will quickly dissipate.
