Cupping therapy is an ancient modality. It has been used since 1,550 B.C. This technique uses "negative pressure" by placing cups on the skin to create a suction. The suction and negative pressure provided by the cupping loosens muscles, encourages blood flow and sedates the nervous system. Cupping has many benefits and is used to relieve high blood pressure, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraines and even cellulite.
