The ancient healing practice of cupping therapy tells a story of the health within your tissues. Dating back to more than 3,000 years ago, cupping was practiced by ancient Chinese, Egyptian, and Greek healers.
By creating a vacuum suction, cupping causes a blood stasis. Pulling new blood to the surface while simultaneously flushing old blood and toxins. Toxins from food, water, chemicals, pollution, drugs, stress, etc.

Cupping feels like a tight, pinching sensation for just a few minutes until feeling goes away completely. The markings left behind last for a few days to one week depending on the person.
I’m constantly getting asked what the coloration of the markings left behind mean. The chart below does a beautiful job explaining. The darker the color the more toxins and stagnation there is within those tissues. When done consistently, the marks should get lighter each time.
