Fire cupping dates back historically to ancient Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern cultures. Many Taoists believe that cupping helps balance Yin and Yang within the body. This type of treatment involves moving energy along meridians in the body just like acupuncture. There are three types of cupping; dry, wet, and needle cupping.
Glass cups are suctioned onto the skin using a small flame. The cooling of the air inside the cup creates a vacuum effect, your skin begins to rise as your blood vessels expand. The cups are left in place or moved across the skin in specific movements, a gentle pressure can be felt from the pulling and stretching of your muscles. Red circular marks may be present on the skin following treatment for 3 to 7 days.
Fire cupping facilitates the flow of Qi and is a type of deep tissue massage that detoxifies and clears blockages. It can help calm the nervous system thus creating a feeling of well being.
