Cupping

What is Cupping  Therapy 

Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.

 

How Cupping Therapy Works

 

Cupping therapy gently pulls skin and underlying tissue upward into the cup. This forms a partial vacuum, which increases blood flow and promotes healing. Cupping therapy is thought to stimulate the flow of energy, or qi, along the meridians of the body (the lines along which your vital energy flows).

 

There are different types of cupping therapy, including:

 

-Dry cupping: The therapist puts the cups on your skin without any liquid inside them

 

-Wet cupping: The therapist makes a small cut on your skin before putting the cup on. This is done so that when the cup is removed, some blood is drawn along with it

 

-Massage cupping: The therapist moves the cups around your body as they would during a massage
