Cupping uses negative pressure created by heat allowing a cup to suction to the skin. Cups can be made out of glass, ceramic, plastic and bamboo. The suction penetrates up to five inches into the body. It loosens and lifts connective tissues. Cupping warms the body, promotes increased circulation and detoxification of tissues by bringing old stuck blood and lymph fluid to the surface to be removed by the body’s natural waste elimination processes.
Cupping is used to treat pain, relieve inflammation, sedate the nervous system, break up and expel congestion, stretches muscle and connective tissues, loosens adhesions, moves stagnation and drains fluids. It provides deep tissue work and release without discomfort.

BEMER Energy Therapy
BEMER stands for Bio Electro-Magnetic Energy Regulation. The frequency emitted is similar to the electro-magnetic energy of the Earth. This frequency opens up the capillaries of the body increasing the circulation of blood through the body for 12 hours. Increased circulation moves white blood cells around the body supporting immune function and detoxification of the body. According to Chinese Medicine, all disease is caused by undetected circulation issues in the body. The BEMER increases the circulation of blood and energy in the body so it can heal and perform optimally.
