Description of Appointment
There are many different ways to cup, the most common ways are Fire Cupping and Suction Cupping. For Fire cupping, cups are applied to the skin using a flame to create a vacuum. We often describe it as a reverse massage. Instead of applying pressure, the skin is gently drawn upwards by creating a vacuum in a cup over the affected area. The cups stay in place for around 5-20 minutes and are not painful or uncomfortable. In fact, people often love the feeling of cups, comparing it to a nice deep massage. Your total appointment will be 30mins

Cupping can sometimes result in temporary discoloration of the skin called petechiae. These marks are associated with improved blood flow to the area and naturally, dissipate within a few days. They tend to look like small circular bruises, and often cause more alarm than is necessary. While a bruise may hurt, cupping marks do not.

Human studies at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) on the effect of acupuncture on the immune system of cancer patients showed that it helped patients in quite a number of ways, including:

Improved immune system response.
Reduced the amount of pain for some cancer patients.
In one study, most of the patients treated with acupuncture were able to stop taking drugs for pain relief or to take smaller doses.
Reduced nausea and vomiting caused by chemotherapy and surgery.
Acupuncture causes physical responses in nerves cells, the pituitary gland, and various parts of the brain. These responses can cause the body to release proteins, hormones, and brain chemicals that control a number of the body's functions. It affects blood pressure and body temperature, boosts the immune system, and causes the body's natural painkillers to be released.

The technique involves the placement of disposable, hair-thin needles into specific points along energy channels on the body. The theory behind acupuncture states that Qi (your body's energy) flows within these meridians or pathways and that stimulating qi flow balances a person to relieve symptoms and eliminate an illness.

Acupuncture treatments can add to a patient's sense of well being and may decrease the malaise associated with any chronic disease, especially cancer.
