Cupping Therapy in Ottawa


Dry Cupping is a painless procedure for encouraging the energy and blood flow into an affected body area to speed up the healing process. A cup is placed over the area and heated to create a vacuum thus drawing the skin into the cup. This draws stagnant blood to the external capillaries, sometimes resulting in minor bruises which disappear within a few days.
