A vacuum type therapy that places a special cup on the body and moved over the skin using different techniques, such as gliding, pulling up on the cup or parked for a very short time to assist with joint mobilization or soft tissue release. This suction also reaches down into the soft tissue and has a sedating effect on the nervous system. Cupping helps to pull inflammation and toxins from body tissue for the skin and lymph system to eliminate and increases your blood flow and reduces stagnation. Excellent add on technique for:
