Cupping Therapy is an ancient Chinese alternative medicine that widely applied in China to treat conditions such as blood disorders, rheumatic diseases, fertility and gynecological disorders, and skin problems. Cuppings are generally applied on neck, back, shoulder, and other musculature areas.
In a Fire Cupping Therapy, the therapist first lights up a cotton ball that soaked in 70% alcohol, then quickly places the cotton ball into the cup and removes quickly. A decent amount of suction is thus created by the heat, enabling the cupping to stay on the skin. Fire Cupping Therapy helps to remove toxic waste from the blood as well as mobilize nutrients and blood flow.
