Cupping is an ancient Chinese therapy that uses a cup that creates suction on the skin when pulling the muscles upwards. This promotes blood flow and enhances circulation in the troublesome areas.
Cupping has been used to treat a wide variety of conditions. It may be particularly effective at easing conditions that create muscle aches and pains.
It relieves muscle tension, which can improve overall blood flow and promote cell repair, as well as help form new connective tissues and blood vessels. This brings relief while strengthening the body’s own healing processes.
Cupping therapy also allows nutrients to flow more easily, promoting detoxification where toxins are released and removed from the body.
Cupping reached worldwide attention in the 2016 Olympic games when athlete Michael Phelps and others exposed their dark red circles as part of their healing modality.
