Kingston Cupping Therapy

Cupping Therapy, a timeless practice with roots stretching back to ancient civilizations, has been a healing modality for over 3,500 years. Originating from Egypt, as depicted in hieroglyphic writings, it was later refined by the famous Taoist alchemist Ge Hong in the third century A.D.


The technique was embraced in ancient Greece, where Hippocrates, the father of medicine, recommended it for various ailments. By the early 20th century, eminent British physician Sir Arthur Keith acknowledged its success in treatments. This rich history underscores the enduring value of Cupping Therapy in promoting health and wellness across centuries and cultures.
