What is Cupping?

Cupping is an ancient technique that is still used by modern practitioners. This form of treatment is usually performed as an alternative to acupuncture, moxabustion, Tui Na and TDP Lamp therapy. The cups are placed over acupuncture points but they treat a larger area of the body. Cupping is effective for clearing stagnation in the channels. It can also be very helpful in expelling the external pathogenic factor of wind-cold that can invade the lungs.
