Cupping therapy uses glass or plastic cups to create localized pressure by a vacuum. The vacuum inside the cups causes the blood to flow into the area and help healing.
Cupping therapy is mainly performed on your back. The suction created in cupping therapy triggers your lymphatic system, stretches and activates your skin, and acts a deep tissue massage for chronic muscle pain or trigger points.
When would you do cupping?
- as a general well being and balancing treatment for overall health
- to treat stubborn muscles or fascia pain (like IT band issues)
- in conjunction with acupuncture
