Cupping Torquay, Newtown & Essendon
Cupping in Chinese medicine philosophy is said to remove stagnation, congestion and cold from the body.
Typically cupping is used for coughs and colds, back pain and headaches. It’s also used to remove cold from the abdomen for women’s menstrual health and to counter muscle tension due to emotional stress. The results are often immediate, particularly for muscle tension, headaches or respiratory congestion.
The therapy has few reported side effects, other than the round marks and bruising which may sometimes occur. Bruising from cupping can be unsightly but should be painless and will only last a short time, up to a week usually.
The intensity of the bruising will vary according to the amount of vacuum applied to a cup.
