Cupping Therapy

Cupping is a healing modality within Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Though cupping dates back thousands of years, it has gained popularity in the modern times. The technique involves placing cups on the skin via local suction. Some of its benefits are listed below:

  • Treating pain
  • Loosening deep scar tissue
  • Releasing knots and adhesions
  • Resolve blood stagnation
  • Clear heat and toxin build up
  • Stimulate the channels in the back
  • Improve circulation
  • Helps general physical and psychological well-being

Cupping is among one of the best deep-tissue therapies available. Tissues several inches from the external skin are believed to be affected.  This allows clearing of any blockages of Qi, helps to facilitate lymphatic circulation, and increase blood flow.  There may be bruise marks left after the procedure. These marks are temporary and disappear after a few days. Cupping is an excellent alternative for those who are not comfortable getting acupuncture needles.  For more information call  905 875 4114 or email
