Cupping is a type of deep tissue therapy using plastic or glass cups (depends on the conditions) creating a suction on the skin and the superficial muscle layer. It feels like a deep tissue massage in reverse, instead of putting pressure on the muscles, it pulls them upward. For most patients, it is particularly relaxing and relieving sensation from the tension and stress of muscles.
Cupping can release muscle tension, encourage blood flow and sedate nervous system. Cupping is used to relieve back and neck pains, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraines, rheumatism, and even cellulite. Like acupuncture, cupping follows the meridians and can target the organ system and relieve the blockage and promote better circulation to the problem area.
