What is Wet Cupping in Clifton, NJ?
The purpose of wet cupping is to detox the body of the toxins in order to treat chronic pain and illness.

The increased blood flow to the treated area draws toxins and impurities away from the organs and nearby tissues towards the surface for elimination. Through the use of acupuncture cupping, the skin is pricked at special energetic acupuncture points to let the stagnant blood out and to get rid of the pathogens and toxins weakening the body.
