Cupping is best known for its benefit of providing relief for acute or chronic muscle pain and tension.
What is Cupping Therapy
By creating suction and negative pressure, cupping therapy lifts connective tissue, releases rigid tissue, and loosens adhesions.
You do not need to be a Olympic level athlete to see the healing benefits of cupping therapy.
How Does It Work?
Cupping therapy stimulates blood flow and nutrition to stagnant areas to help restore damaged tissues. When you undergo a cupping treatment you will experience pressure under the cup which helps to break up fluids and scar tissue that may have built up in the local tissue, bringing them to your skin’s surface to be eliminated by your circulatory or lymphatic symptoms.
For muscle pain and tension, the suction of cupping increases circulation and triggers a localized response of the immune system. It also decompresses tight fascia, which is the sheath that wraps around various muscle groups. Essentially, the effect of the suction leads to a “release” of the tense muscles.Book Online
