Cupping therapy is said to open the ‘Meridians’ of the body. Meridians are the conduits within each of us through which energy flows to reach every part of the body, its organs and tissues. Opening the flow of energy, or increasing the circulation in the body strengthens its ability to heal.
Cupping is used for lower back pain, sprains, soft tissue injuries, sports injuries and helping relieve fluid from the lungs, from chest congestion or chronic bronchitis. In addition, it can alleviate the symptoms of or resolve menstrual and digestive problems.
