What is traditional Chinese cupping?
Cupping is a traditional Chinese therapy that has been around for thousands of years. It involves the use of heated “cups,” which can be manufactured from glass, bamboo, or pottery. The warm cups are placed on the skin along one or more of the 12 meridians of the body, including the lung, large and small intestine meridians, spleen, stomach, heart, bladder, kidney, sex meridian, triple warmer meridian, liver, and gallbladder meridian. As the cups rapidly cool, they create a suction that pulls the skin into the cup.

Cupping and acupuncture can release the energy. This promotes healing and treats many different types of illnesses.
