Disease is considered to arise due to a deficiency or imbalance of Qi in the meridians and their associated physiological systems. Acupuncture treatment can activate the body’s Qi and promotes natural healing by enhancing recuperative power, immunity, physical and emotional health.

Cupping Therapy is also an ancient form of medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. Although cupping has become very popular over the past few years, but it’s far from new. It dates back to ancient Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern cultures. One of the oldest medical textbooks in the world, the Ebers Papyrus, describes how the ancient Egyptians used cupping therapy in 1,550 B.C.
Benefits of Cupping Therapy
Pain relief: Cupping therapy may help to reduce pain and inflammation, particularly in the muscles and joints. The suction created by the cups can help to increase blood flow and stimulate the body's natural healing processes.
Improved circulation: Cupping therapy can improve circulation by increasing blood flow to the treated area. This can help to deliver more oxygen and nutrients to the tissues, which can promote healing and reduce inflammation.
Relaxation: Cupping therapy can be a deeply relaxing experience, and many people find it to be a great way to unwind and de-stress. The gentle suction of the cups can help to release tension and promote a sense of calm.
Improved immune function: Cupping therapy may help to improve immune function by stimulating the body's natural defense mechanisms. This can help to fight off illness and infection, and may also help to reduce the severity of certain conditions.
Detoxification: Cupping therapy can help to stimulate the lymphatic system, which is responsible for removing toxins from the body. This can help to detoxify the body and improve overall health and wellbeing.
Improved skin health: Cupping therapy can improve skin health by increasing blood flow and promoting the production of collagen and elastin. This can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and may also help to improve the overall texture and tone of the skin.
