What is Naturopathy?
Natural Healing Center, LLC
Medical cupping is a therapy using glass cups and a flame to create a vacuum or suction on the skin. Cupping has developed over time with early written records going back to 28 AD. It started with the use of animal horns, then bamboo cups and finally to glass cups. We use glass and silicone cups.
It's a way of 'clearing the drain.' Massage can release and move toxins but if there is significant build up massage is not enough.
Traditional Chinese Medicine states it will warm the meridians, dispels stagnation and it increases as well as promotes the flow of Qi and blood.

Will it hurt?
Yes, it most likely will. Whether it hurts and how much can depend on several factors including the amount of toxins and metabolic waste built up, how tight the fascia and muscles are, your level of tolerance and more.
