Cupping is an age old technique that was first practiced by our ancestors using animal horns. We no longer use animal horns, but have moved on to use special glass cups. Cupping is the use of glass cups on a designated part of the body. The practitioner displaces the air in the cup in create suction by placing a cotton ball that has lit on fire into the cup, pulling it out and then placing the cup on your body.
Cupping is often performed to help tight muscles relax and is great for helping the body combat colds and flus.
