Cupping has become widely common to help treat many health conditions. It is a form of TCM therapy where inverted cups are used on acupoints, and negative pressure is applied to draw the skin area into the cup. At Yi TCM, we use air cupping which provides a safe treatment while ensuring quality treatment.
Traditionally, cupping helps to get rid of dampness and remove blood stasis. It is widely believed that cupping help to promote blood and lymph flow. Cupping allows the connective tissue to loosen and the improved blood and lymph flow towards the treatment area bring oxygen rich blood which helps promote healing and toxin and waste removal.
