Cupping is a traditional Chinese therapy helping reduce pain and enhance blood flow. The cups, placed on the skin, create healing suction that promotes cell repair and produces new blood vessels in the tissue. Cupping is an ancient technique that originally was performed using animal horns, bamboo, and ceramic. Now massage therapists use rounded glass cups for wet and dry cupping, depending on your medical condition. Before placing the cups on your skin, the practitioners heat them with fire using alcohol, paper, or herbs. Once the cups cooled, your skin gets red due to the vacuum drawing the muscle upward into the cup. After that, the therapists cover the cupped areas with bandages or ointment to avoid any infections. If you have bruises after the session, that is normal. They are usually mild and disappear within ten days. Cupping is an excellent method for treating a wide range of health conditions, including cough, asthma, chronic pain, muscle tightness, back pain, acne, depression, insomnia, varicose veins, anxiety and more. Overall, it stimulates tissues to release toxins, restores lymphatic circulation, brings oxygen-rich blood and lymph toward your lungs, encourages blood and body fluid to move through your organs. This therapy has some side effects, so do not forget to consult with your doctor before beginning the treatment.
