WHAT IS CUPPING?
There are two types of cupping therapies widely available with practitioners today: Wet cupping and Dry cupping. Both types of Cupping involve using a flame to heat up – and then rapidly cool down air inside a cup to create a vacuum effect. The cups are used to suck targeted areas of the skin inside and the cup is usually left on for anywhere between 3-15 minutes to stimulate the flow of blood to the muscles and improve energy flow around the body.

WHO USES CUPPING?
Cupping is used lots of people for all sorts of different reasons. Actresses Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Aniston are said to be fans, Justin Bieber was recently spotted post cupping treatment and it’s popular with athletes too, notably Michael Phelps (the evidence of cupping on the skin was clear to see at the Olympic Games in Rio). Gisele Bundchen was even shot for the cover of Vogue Italia having it done on her bum (albeit rather tongue in cheek!)
