Restoring balance through our body’s intelligent healing
Fire cupping has been used for thousands of years and works to stimulate the flow of the body’s blood, qi, and lymph. Fire is placed into a cup to remove the oxygen and create a suction for the cups to gently grab on to the muscle tissue. It often is used to help soothe pain and achy muscles, fluid congestion and for stress relief.
Relaxes tight and tense muscles
Stretches fascia and tissue knots
Releases toxins through skin pores
Moves phlegm and fluid retention in lungs
Reduces pain and inflammation
Calms nervous system for stress and anxiety
With this technique, cups are placed over the skin and muscle tissue and remain stationary for deep healing over specific area. This is where you will often see the circle bruises left over by the cups.
With moving cupping, cups are gently glided over the skin using massage oils to provide healing over the entire surface of an area. A combination of both statationary and moving may be used.
For extra added fun, heart cups can be used just like regular cupping except it will leave heart shaped marks instead. Request heart cups during your session if you wish to be marked with love.
