Cupping Therapy is an old treatment technique of placing several vacuum pressured glasses on the body to perform reverse-pressure massage. It has been in practice in both China and the West for more than 3000 years.
The process traditionally uses glass jars, heated to create a vacuum, and placed on the upper back to relieve acute illnesses such as colds and fevers. Cupping can also be done all over the body to invigorate the flow of Qi and to relieve tension and pain. It is often used for treating upper and lower backache, chronic nausea & vomiting, sciatica, frozen shoulder and more.
At Magnolia Wellness OC we offer cupping therapy alongside acupuncture.
