Cupping Health Benefits


Cupping therapy is used by many Olympic contenders with wonderful results.

Cupping is a very effective treatment which involves applying bell shaped cups made of glass or bamboo to the skin in order to warm the area affected by impaired circulation.

This kind of stagnation can occur for many reasons – injuries that never fully healed may create scar tissue and poor circulation in a localised area which creates site specific pain.

Toxins and cell wastes can stagnate in muscles and joints when our liver and kidneys are not able to process and excrete them correctly. While in storage they can build up in the muscle layer causing pain and discomfort. The vacuum action of cupping rapidly facilitates their release while increasing blood and lymph flow to skin, muscles and connective tissue.

The body’s capillary system at the skin level carries these toxins to the liver and kidneys where they can be metabolised and excreted.

Toxins pulled up to the skin level will leave marks that are perfectly normal and not to be mistaken for bruising, but instead are a result of internal toxins being pulled to the surface and should fade away in a week or so.

You can expect some dramatic colours to appear when:

  • The issue is chronic
  • If there is a history of recreational drug or prescription use
  • You are eating more animal protein
  • Candida or other parasites are present
  • You have had exposure to environmental toxins
  • There has been some traumatic emotional event

Conditions treated with cupping include:

  • Pain or injuries
  • Musculoskeletal conditions such as back pain, shoulder or neck pain
  • Tension or tightness in the lower back
  • Respiratory problem such as asthma, bronchitis, or any kind of tension or stress
