Chinese New Year Cupping Special
Kim’s Healing Center is offering a $20 introductory special for Cupping therapy. Cupping therapy is one of the oldest practices of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), dating back at least 2,000 years. The method involves heating the air inside small glass cups and placing the inverted cups on a part of the body, usually the back. As the cups cool, suction against the skin is created, which can loosen muscles, boost blood fl ow and sedate the nervous system, which also makes it an ideal treatment for high blood pressure.
According to research studies published in BMC Complementary & Alternative Medicine, more than 50 diseases or symptoms have been treated with cupping. Aside from pain-related ailments, other maladies include respiratory conditions, anxiety, migraines, rheumatism, acne and even cellulite. Similar to the procedure of acupuncture, the cups are usually placed on the five meridian lines down the back. By targeting these paths through which life energy, or qi, flows freely throughout the body, cupping operates to open them up, thus causing a smoother and more free-fl owing qi.
