Cupping therapy is an ancient and traditional form of alternative medicine used to promote blood flood to the area of interest. The cups are placed on the skin over the area in need of rehabilitation and pressure is applied by gently removing air from the cup. This raises the skin and tissues underneath. The muscles and blood vessels underneath the cup are under tension and this promotes blood flow to the area being targeted. Blood flow is key when it comes to healing. The blood brings healing properties and nutrients to allow your injury to heal more quickly. It decreases inflammation and pain. It can be placed on one part of the body or could be used to glide along a body part as a form of deep massage therapy.
