Fire cupping therapy is an ancient medicinal technique. Widely practiced across Asia, fire cupping appears in many traditional healing cultures across the world. Contemporary fire cupping practitioners provide safe and powerful treatments.
Glass cups are safely heated with fire, and placed on the skin. The warm air creates suction and draws the cup tight to the skin. This pulling action expands blood vessels, stimulating blood flow. Circulation increases, and with it the body’s natural mechanism for transporting nutrients throughout the system.
This might sound painful, but it’s more like a deep tissue massage. The increased blood flow brings relief deep into the muscles below the fascia. You might be familiar with the red circles that are left on a participant’s back after a session – this is from the expanded blood vessels, and will fade with time.
