What is Cupping Therapy?
Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which the therapist puts special cups on the skin for a few minutes to create a suction. The negative pressure that is experienced during the cupping method helps to soften muscles and lift connective tissue. It aids in increasing the blood flow to the treated areas and drain excess fluids and toxins. Cupping encourages the body's natural healing processes which is why it is a method often utilized as a form of alternate physical therapy.
Benefits of cupping therapy include:
Increase blood flow
Stimulate relaxation and well-being
