ST GEORGE CUPPING THERAPY

Cupping Therapy

There are different types of Cupping Instruments.


The first type of cupping is with glass cups which are used with fire cupping.


The second type of cupping is with suction cups or vacuum cups.


Dr. Hardy uses both styles of cupping and has found with experience that fire cupping is best for muscles and using vacuum cupping is best to be used around joints.

What Happens During A Treatment

During a cupping treatment, the practitioner will place a flammable substance (such as herbs or alcohol) inside a cup, and then ignite that substance.

 

 

When the fire goes out, the practitioner places the cup upside-down over certain qi pathways linked to the condition being treated.

 

 

The cup is usually left in place for five to ten minutes, during which 

time blood vessels expand and increase circulation.

 

 

Cupping is also thought to open up the skin’s pores and promote detoxification.
