Cupping is a method of care that is intended to help alleviate muscle tension, improve blood circulation, and promote cell repair. It works by placing a warmed vessel or suction device on targeted areas of the skin. As the air inside the cup is cooled, negative pressure draws the skin and underlying muscle upward into the vessel.
While cupping offers relief of physical pain as it addresses deeper areas of scar tissue, muscle knots, and inflammation, it can also release emotional tension and alleviate symptoms of chronic physical ailments.
Cupping is a technique that's derived from an ancient Chinese healing art. It's believed that cupping helps to enable the flow of energy or life force in the body, which is known as the “qi,” while also helping to achieve a balance between the negative and positive yin and yang.
