Chinese Cupping has been around for well over a thousand years, originally it was performed with hollowed out bamboo cups, but now cups are usually made from specially designed and strengthened glass.
It is also commonly used in Chinese Medicine to increase lung capacity and to boost overall energy and power in the body.
On the contrary, most people find the cupping treatment to be very relaxing. It does not feel that much different to getting a very deep massage.
In my clinic I normally accompany Cupping with a free Infra Red Lamp Treatment. This really enhances the effect and helps to naturally boost energy and hormone levels in the body.
Cupping, along with all other Chinese Medical therapies, are available at the Leixlip Chinese Medical Clinics.
