Cupping is used for many different forms of therapeutic treatment. Cupping utilizes negative pressure through suction to draw the skin into plastic cups to force blood into the tissue. By creating this forced blood flow, you are speeding up the body’s healing process. In other words, increased circulation in the blood helps to flush out inflammation and recirculate areas that lack blood. Lack of proper blood flow can create tension in the muscles and joints, as well as cause chronic pain. Restoring the body’s healthy blood flow creates an overall efficient reaction to recovery, injury and overall wellness.
