Is a traditional Chinese medicine therapy based on applying heat in an acupuncture point or body area, boosting its resultant therapy.
The heat is added by burning Moxa (dry processed Atemisia Vulgaris) a well known medicinal plant in Chinese medicine.

It is based on the application of negative tension between a therapeutic cup and your skin, by doing so it will increase your flow of Qi (Vital Energy), blood and oxygen to the treated area.
Cupping has been trending since its usage was a common practice among olympic athletes mainly to release muscular tension and increase their performance. It’s an excellent tool to release wind or heat arrested in your body.
Ask more for facial cupping for lifting or releasing sinus pressure.
Gua Sha uses a very similar principle as cupping, by scraping the skin and implementing forces against the body.
During Gua Sha, a tool is used to scrape an area of the body where stagnation or toxins exist. Firm, repetitive strokes are used to break up tough knots or problem areas in the fascia.
Once those areas of tightness are relaxed, qi and blood can, once again, move freely and nourish that area.
