Cupping is actually a really old-school therapy dating back to ancient Egypt, China and the Middle-East. Ewa and Ula were using cupping therapy in Europe before coming to Chicago more than 15 years ago. This therapy uses special cups placed on the skin to create suction. It enhances blood flow, gets rid of toxins, reduces pain, and promotes recovery and healing. Athletes love it for faster recovery. Others love it because it is great deep work, but not so painful. Trending right now? Moving cupping.... really cool.
