Combining Stationary & Sliding Cups Approaches

Heath Reed May 16, 2023

Cupping creates a vacuum suction and provides negative pressure, sometimes creating changes in skin coloration, or ecchymosis. This process invites blood to flow from as far as 4 inches deep to the skin lifting and drawing circulation from the arteries to the more superficial capillaries, fascial, and meridians. This enhanced circulation distributes greater levels of nutrition, oxygenation, qi flow into the surrounding areas, while simultaneously encouraging detoxification of cellular waste and excess fluid.

“Circulation is all.”
