ANCIENT REMEDIES ADVANCE APPLICATIONS
Cupping is a highly effective technique when administered properly. At Channels of Wellness, our practitioners implement this ancient form of healing focusing on the overall Qi balance of the patient.
CUPPING TREATMENT PLAN
Cupping a technique used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It involves placing cups with heated air on the skin. Once the air inside cools, the skin under the cup experiences a suction effect. The cups are usually left on the body for 5-15 min before being removed.
Cupping draws more blood into an area, which can relieve muscle tension through improved blood flow. It also improves oxygen supply, which aids in optimum function of the body part.
After treatment, the skin under the cup may become bruised and discoloured. It can take up to 7-10 days for the colour to return to normal.
THE BENEFITS OF CUPPING

Inducing comfort and promoting deep relaxation throughout the body as the cup glides across the skin and engages the parasympathetic nervous system
