Cupping is a great way to relieve muscle tension and soreness. Using suction, the cups create a partial vacuum over specific muscles, which is then quickly removed to help pull up the skin and muscle tissue layers. This process may be done with or without heat or fire being applied first.
Cupping has been around for centuries and it has been recorded that cupping was used in China as early as 3000 B.C. The procedure has grown, and continues to grow in popularity due to the various benefits it provides such as short-term pain relief, relaxation of tense muscles, anti-aging and more!
Cupping promotes blood flow and thus helps increase oxygen levels in the body. This can help reduce joint pain and temporarily decrease muscle soreness after intense workouts. Some cupping therapists will add cupping to their pre-workout massage routine if they are going to be exercising later that day or the next day, as cupping is said to increase the flexibility of muscles while reducing stiffness and soreness from exercise.
The short term relaxation benefits of cupping have also been known to provide an all over sense of calmness in patients which can lead to better sleep quality and energy levels.
Cupping also helps to remove waste products from muscle tissues which can lead to faster recovery times after workouts and increase immunity.
Cupping can be used to treat a wealth of conditions and ailments such as:
– neck pain
– back pain
– muscle pain
– certain fertility disorders
– specific blood conditions
– and much more
Overall cupping is an effective and versatile treatment. It can act as an alternative to acupuncture for many ailments and can provide immediate relief from various different sources of pain.
