Cupping

Cupping

Cupping therapy is a form of alternative medicine in which a local suction is created on the skin with the application of heated cups

 

The benefits of cupping include local pain relief and muscle relaxation. Cupping improves overall health by removing the energy blockages that TCM practitioners identify as barriers to the flow of healthy energy or qi. For athletes, cupping may help increase blood flow to a particular muscle region or help reduce pain.
