Cupping (Ba-Guan)

What Is Cupping?​

 

Cupping therapy is an ancient form of TCM treatment in which a local suction is created on the skin; TCM believes this mobilises blood flow in order to promote healing. Cupping is often used in pain management. During and after the session, there might be redness and bruises formed. We do not encourage strong and prolonged suction that leaves one with blisters and permanent scars. Do take note that cupping is unsuitable for people with diabetes, cancer, infectious disease, open wounds, skin problems and pregnant ladies.
