Used within an Acupuncture Treatment, Cupping is a gentle, enjoyable, comfortable and effective way to help relieve pain. Glass cups are used to create a vacuum, and are then applied to the affected area to stimulate the nervous system, move blood and oxygen into tissues. Shifting “stagnation” into movement and initiating matrix grid regulation. Supporting tissue area is regenerated and muscle tension is relieved/relaxed. Circulation is also improved. Cupping also eases respiratory issues as it helps clear stagnation or phlegm from the lungs. Casey mostly uses sliding glass cupping which tends to feel like a deep tissue massage.
