30 Minute Fire Cupping and Love Cupping (heart-shaped)
What is Fire Cupping?
Fire cupping is a form of traditional Chinese medicine that focuses on aiding the body into recovery, whether from workouts or a sickness. Traditional Chinese medicine uses fire cupping to improve the body’s blood flow, and flow of qi, through realigning and pressure.
Cupping treatments are popular among Olympic athletes and professional athletes like Michael Phelps, as well as for people who lead busy lives.
The cupping process itself works opposite to a massage: it pulls tissue, rather than pushing it around. In our specific cupping treatments, we use glass cups to create suction that feels similar to a deep tissue massage. The use of fire is passed down from cupping’s traditional roots, and the flame works as a catalyst to create a better level of suction.
There are a few types of cupping, from fire cupping to love cupping (where the cups used are in the shape of hearts). Love cupping is a great way to get a quick, 30-minute refresh with a loved one!
