Cupping is a 5000 year old Chinese natural treatment method. Opposite to massage, cupping sucks air from the cup creating a negative pressure and sucking in the skin and the blood towards that area. The aim of this treatment is to prevent injury, improve performance and create a faster healing and recovery time for injuries already sustained.

 Cupping pulls blood to a region to stimulate healing. It is effective at stretching tight connective tissue and muscles, helps the tissue develop new blood flow and causes anti-inflammatory chemicals in the body.  The Marks that are left are part of the process, they usually go away in 3-5 days but can last for a couple of weeks depending on level of stagnation in the area.
