Cupping is an old technique performed in both China and the west. Healers across Eurasia would take glass jars, heat them to create a vacuum, and place them on the upper back to relieve acute illnesses such as colds and fevers. The Chinese took this one step further and found that it could be used all over the body to invigorate blood flow and to relieve tension and pain. It was made popular by movies like Godfather Part II and the marks on Gwyneth Paltrow’s back before the Oscars but can be extremely effective. It is often used for treating upper and lower back ache, chronic nausea & vomiting, sciatica, frozen shoulder and more. Changes in stiffness, pain and mobility can often be seen immediately.
