Fire Cupping is a therapy in which a glass jar is attached to the skin surface through the negative pressure created by using an ignited cotton ball. This method has the function of warming and promoting the free flow of qi and blood by creating space in the meridians. It addresses discomfort due to stagnation, or the dispelling of external pathogens (like the common cold), and the reduction of inflammation or pain in the body. During your session I will use cupping alongside massage techniques to support any areas of focus. This modality may or may not cause therapeutic petechiae, or discoloration of the skin.
