What is Cupping?

Cupping is most effective and oldest technique to remove toxins from surface of body.

Static & Dynamic Cupping

Cupping therapy is one of the most ancient and effective ways to remove toxins from bodily tissue and organs. It is a technique in which the therapist creates suction by placing specific cups on the skin. The tissue beneath the cup is drawn up and swells as a result, increasing blood supply to the affected area. Impurities and toxins are drawn away from nearby tissues and organs and brought to the surface for elimination by increased blood flow under the cups.

Cupping therapy is appropriate for both healthy people (anti-aging treatment, rejuvenation) and patients who are ill. A headache, lower back discomfort, neck pain, and knee pain are examples of localised diseases that benefit from cupping therapy. Hypertension, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes mellitus, mental disorders, heart disease, hypertension, and infections are some of the systemic conditions that have benefited from cupping therapy. Skin illnesses, respiratory, musculoskeletal, digestive, reproductive, and allergy issues can all be treated with it.
