WHAT IS CUPPING THERAPY?

Discover the benefits of this alternative therapy.


The Chinese Cupping Therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine that consists of putting special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction.

The cups may be made of glass, bamboo, acrilic, or silicone. Besides, there are different methods of cupping, including dry and wet.

Some of the purposes of cupping are: help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and also as a type of deep-tissue massage.

High blood pressure and chronic pain might be caused by poor health habits and the pressures of daily life, leading to chronic stress. Inflammation can be caused when the physical pain increases in the particular area.

The Chinese Cupping is a noninvasive therapy where the cups are used to be moved across the skin, or smoothly pulled to encourage blood flow and relieve back and neck pain, anxiety, migraines, among other health issues.

Some people also get “needle cupping,” in which the therapist first inserts acupuncture needles and then puts cups over them.

Moreover, it is common to see some marks on your skin after the treatment. They can be sensitive, however, they should disappear in a few hours or days, depending on your body. Another important reminder is that they should never be painful.
