CUPPING

Cupping is a reflex therapy that relieves pain and stimulates circulation; it activates the immune system and loosens hardening of the skin and in the subcutaneous tissue.

The therapist places glass suction cups, so-called “cupping heads”, along the reflex zones or on special acupuncture points on the patient’s back; a vacuum is created by a suction device. The suction on the skin dilates the blood vessels so that the blood flow is increased.

Indications:

Painful conditions in rheumatic diseases and osteoporosis, back and neck pain, stomach and intestinal complaints, respiratory diseases, chronic states of weakness.
