Cupping is a system to put suction power on one or more points of the meridians by means of a metal, wooden, glass or plastic “cup”. By creating partial vaccums in these cups, they influence the Qi-flow in the meridians and they have a visible effect n the circulation of the underlying tissues: after approximately 10 minutes the cups will leave a clear imprint.

Cupping is not a treatment by itself. The integration of cupping into an acupuncture session prolongs the treatment by at least a quarter of an hour.

With cupping you can treat all kinds of (pain) symptoms such as:

  • frozen shoulder
  • frozen shoulder blades
  • migraine
  • digestion symptoms
  • gynaecological issues (infertility, irregular menstruation with cramps)
  • chronic respiratory disturbances (asthma, bronchitis)
  • insomnia
  • damage or swelling of the weak parts
  • local pressure points that are painful
