Is an ancient Chinese practice in which a glass or plastic cup is applied to the skin so that the skin and superficial muscle layer is drawn into and held in the cup.
The cup is then moved around while the suction of skin is active, causing a regional pulling of the skin and muscle beneath. Other times, the cups are left in one position for a few minutes. This treatment gives the tissue a deep, quick massage. Cupping helps breaks down adhesions and scar tissue while mobilizing the soft tissues beneath. This greatly increases blood flow to the area and helps remove toxins and metabolic waste products. This triggers a detoxifying and healing cascade to the treated area.
Cupping can benefit any painful, sore or achy area. It can be used for: bronchitis, swelling, arthritis, low back pain, ligament sprains, tendonitis, iliotibial band friction syndrome, knee pain, shoulder tension, sports injuries, boosting immunity, improving digestion and more.
