What is Cupping Therapy?
Cupping Therapy is an ancient alternative medicine therapy and complementary treatment that utilizes special “cups” to create suction in specific locations of the body with the intention to increase blood flow and reduce pain symptoms and deep tissue inflammation within the body.
These special cups are applied with minimal pressure, heat and suction. This suction is caused by the heat within the cup when placed on the body. The beginning of Cupping Therapy is believed to be around 1500 B.C. From then, many cultures have adopted and added more beneficial techniques to cupping therapies.
Cupping Therapy may help to:
- Decrease Blood Pressure
- Improve Circulation
- Decrease Migraines
- Decrease Cellulite
- Boost skin function to help with acne and eczema
- Help with anxiety and depression
- Decrease Myofascial Pain
How does Cupping Theraoy actually work?
Being the skin is the biggest organ of the human body; when doing Cupping Therapy, the cups suction pulls the unhealthy toxins up to the surface of the skin allowing healthy blood and oxygen flow to the needed areas. This allows the toxins to be flushed out through the lymphatic system, kidneys and liver.
What does it feel like?
Cupping is safe, and although it is usually painless, some patients experience a slight sensation of suction and pulling of the skin. This is mostly the only discomfort experienced. For the mayority of people, cupping is enjoyable and relaxing. After the treatment with cupping therapy, it is very normal to have some painless bruising in the circle shapes where the cups were placed. These bruises usually disapear within 3 to 4 days.
