What treatments use Cupping and Gua Sha?
Cupping and Gua Sha help get things moving and increase the effectiveness of other treatments. Cupping and Gua Sha work when a practitioner takes a tool, made of bone or jade, to scrape the skin, which releases heat and breaks the capillaries for therapeutic purposes. This procedure helps the body flush toxins and eliminates barriers to other aspects of recovery. We use Cupping in our nutrition treatments, which might be less effective without it. Specifically, Cupping improves gut circulation and digestion. Additionally, Cupping and Gua Sha work to improve your internal health by increasing integrated function and alleviating congestion in the nervous system, both of which help your body better communicate with your brain.
