Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine. Cups are placed on your skin to create suction and decompress the tissues.

It dates back to ancient Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern cultures.
This technique uses your body’s own energy as a method to determine what body systems are out of balance, and what type or types of therapy are necessary to restore harmony. Muscle testing may be used to assess the physical, nutritional and emotional needs of the individual. It is beneficial to test the autonomic nervous system, to determine where the body may have blockages that slow healing.
