Release pain and tension with cupping
Cupping belongs to the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). During the application, a stimulus is applied to the subcutaneous tissue on selected acupuncture points. The blood and lymph flow is stimulated, blocked energies get back into flow – self-healing powers are activated.
Cupping for sports injuries
Cupping has also proven effective for sports injuries and all types of tension. During the application, hardenings in the subcutaneous and muscle tissue are efficiently loosened.
Cupping is a reflex therapy that relieves pain and stimulates blood circulation; it activates the immune system and loosens hardenings in the skin and subcutaneous tissue.
The practitioner places glass suction cups, the 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.
