What is Cupping?

Let’s talk about cupping therapy. Ancient civilizations, such as Egypt and China, had knowledge about cupping and how beneficial it is. Fast forward to today, and it is still widely used to provide pain relief and improve circulation.

Overall, this type of therapy offers a holistic approach to health and well-being. Whether you’re seeking relief from pain, stress, or other health issues, cupping therapy may provide a natural and effective solution to help you feel your best.

If you’re dealing with soreness or just want to feel more relaxed, this could be just what you need.

How Does Cupping Therapy Work?

It uses special cups that raise up your skin with suction. Cupping creates a gentle pull on your skin and muscles. This pull improves blood flow to the skin and muscles, reduces pain, and provides healing to the targeted region. 

You may also wonder why we use the cups in this way. Well, it’s not just for fun. When they stick to your skin, they make a kind of vacuum. This vacuum helps your body relax and let go of any tension.
