Detoxifying, tension and stress relieving, promotes blood & lymphatic circulation
Cupping is an ancient form of medicinal treatment that uses vacuum suction cup locally to help relieve any tension, respiratory conditions, stress, muscle aches and pains and also used for detoxifying treatment.
During the cupping session, the suction cup will be applied on the skin and you will feel a little bit of tightness and suction. This will only be left on the skin for as little to seconds to 3 minutes to avoid potential of blistering.
After cupping, you may expect a bruise-like mark called "Sha" which are rashes for the toxins to escape.
They are usually a light pink to dull purplish-red colour depending on the tension of your muscle, and will then disappear and fade gradually. The marks usually lasts for 4-5 days.
If you are prone to bruising, then it may last 7-10 days.
You may also feel tired and/or sore on the day after cupping to the next 1-2 days, which are all normal reactions and process of promoted blood circulation and detoxification.
We avoid performing cupping treatments on pregnant women, children with high fever, clients who experience spasms, convulsions, dizziness and vertigo; Areas such as neck and where the main arteries, small cuts and wounds are avoided.
