What is cupping?
Cupping is a form of traditional Chinese medicine that uses vacuum cups. These cups create a suction of the skin and helps remove toxins from the body. The vacuum is created by a suction pump that draws the air out of the cup. The intensity of the suction can range from light to heavy in order to relieve symptoms of the injury. Gliding the cups along the muscle and tissues will achieve optimal benefits of treatment.
The benefits of Cupping:
- Release soft tissue by stretching underlying structures
- Loosening of scars and adhesion to improve soft tissue
- Promotes secretion of synovial fluid to reduce joint stiffness
- Activating muscle spindle reflexes that relax contractile tissue
