What Is Cupping Therapy?

Cupping Therapy is an alternative form of medicine that has been around for thousands of years.  It is a simple application of quick, vigorous, rhythmical strokes to stimulate muscles to help treat aches and pains. 

The physician will place the cups on your skin and use an attached suction handle to control the intensity of the suction.  You might feel a slight discomfort or pinching sensation while the cups are suctioned on.  It generally isn’t painful but will leave temporary marks on the skin and possibly even bruising.  The cups are left on the skin for approximately 3 to 5 minutes.  

Cupping Therapy can help treat physical issues by increasing blood flow and circulation.  Cupping is thought to facilitate the energetic, fluid flow and bring back balance to your system.  Studies also show that Cupping Therapy is an effective way to remove toxins trapped at a cellular level.  

How Does It Work?

During a cupping session, a physician will place cups along different parts of your body.  The cups create suction on your skin.  Blood vessels along the cup will expand and break open, leading to circle-shaped discolored marks.  As part of the healing process, your body will send oxygen-rich blood to repair the broken blood vessels, treating the cupped area as an injury.  If you have sore muscles, cupping along the sore spots should help repair them quicker.
