China, being one of the oldest civilizations in the world, is known for its traditional ways of healing. Natural remedies, herbal remedies, acupressure and various alternative treatments that we now value can be traced back to China. In ancient times the Chinese practiced Ruo Shi and this was where the Chinese foot massage was based. They believed in achieving complete healing by concentrating on stimulating acu-points in the body. Most of the major acu-points, according to the science of reflexology are found in a person’s feet.
A deep tissue massage is an effective full body massage that brings blood to the muscles and deeply relaxes the client.

removes all the oxygen,which created a vacuum.
As the substance burns, the cup is turned upside-down so that the practitioner can place the cup over a specific area. The vacuum created by the lack of oxygen anchors the cup to the skin and pulls it upward on the inside of the glass as the air inside the jar cools.Drawing up the skin is believed to open up the skin's pores,which helps to stimulate the flow of blood, balances and realigns the flow of qi,breaks up obstructions,and creates an avenue for toxins to be drawn out of the body.
Depending on the condition being treated, the cups will be left in place from 5 to 10 minutes.Several cups may be placed on a patient's body at the same time.Some practitioners will also apply small amounts of medicated oils or herbal oils to the skin just before the cupping procedure, which lets them move the cups up and down particular acupoints or meridians after they have been applied.
