Cupping

Cupping, or ventosas, is an ancient art, practiced by virtually every culture in the world at one time. Every family used to be able to treat a variety of simple ailments and injuries with just a few basic tools. Asian, Ancient European and Central American styles of cupping may be used separately or combined for a very elegant treatment. Cupping treatments can be used to treat the uterus, urinary, digestive, kidney issues, musculoskeletal issues and injuries, or simply to alleviate pain.
