Cupping Therapy is one of the most ancient and effective methods of detoxifying the body’s tissues and organs. It is also known as vacuum cupping and a technique in which the therapist applies suction to the skin using special cups. The suction promotes increased blood circulation, which help relieve muscle tension, promote cell repair, and aid in other regeneration.
