Cupping therapy is mainly used to relax muscles, helping with back and neck pains. However, according to Chinese theory, this therapy has much wider applications for achieving greater health benefits, not common to western society. Cupping uses the power of suction, improving the flow of blood and lymph, whilst avoiding their stagnation. This consequently will also improve the flow of the qi; the inner energy of the body, and therefore is used for treating the common cold, and flu as well as illnesses of the respiratory system, like bronchitis and asthma.
Dean has performed cupping therapy for many years from his clinic on Auckland’s North Shore. If you’d like to learn more about this treatment (or any of our other services), please contact us us or complete a direct online booking.
