Fire Cupping is an East Asian Medicine procedure with immediate health benefits. Specialized glass cups are placed on acupuncture points along the back corresponding to the organ systems. The cups are then gently moved along the meridians, promoting blood flow and stimulating the release of toxins. This treatment is very relaxing and soothing.
As cupping brings some of those toxins to the surface, it will cause temporary marks. The marks will fade within 24 hours and typically disappear within three to four days, though in some cases they may linger for a week or two.
