Cupping Therapy, is a simple technique that applies suction to the skin. I describe it as an inverse massage. Cupping relieves pain, loosens and lifts connective tissues, breaks up fascial adhesions from old injuries or overworked muscles, and increases blood circulation.
Often times, when pain is present, it is due to blockage of blood flow to the affected area. Cupping effectively brings stagnant blood to the surface, so that it can all be flushed out by the lymph system, liver and kidneys. This allows fresh, oxygenated blood to flow freely to the targeted areas in order to heal the muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints.
