Nope, it’s not an octopus hickey!

It’s cupping! 

One of the most common questions I get asked is…”What is cupping?” Followed by…”What is it good for and how does it work???”

Traditional fire cupping is part of Chinese Medicine and has been around for thousands of years. It benefits many conditions, and can also be very relaxing (ok it may not look like it in this picture…but it’s doesn’t hurt!).

The technique I used in this picture was sliding cupping, for all over back pain (and chronic cough). It can be done in only one area as well, and on different parts of the body.

If you’d like to see me demonstrate fire cupping and talk all about the benefits, watch this short video!






I’ll also explain how it works, who’s a good candidate and how long those marks will last!

The video is NOT is a tutorial, so please don’t try this at home:)

Ok, enjoy the show! And please leave us a comment right below this blog and tell us one thing you learned about cupping in this video. We’d love to hear from you! If you think this post is valuable for others, please share it!

Remember, you have the power within to heal yourself, and healing is always an option!

In health,
