What is Cupping Therapy?
Cupping Therapy is the method of using glass or plastic cups to create localized pressure by a vacuum.
How does Cupping Therapy work?
Cupping Therapy works by reducing the pain we feel in our bodies. When the suction cup is placed on a problem area, the vacuum pull of the cup creates warmth and circulation in the area, reducing pain. The vacuum inside the cups causes the blood to form in the area and help healing in that area. The increased circulation created by using Cupping Therapy helps to dissolve adhesions, normalize the position of the soft tissue and release its tension, lengthen the connective tissue, hydrate the joints, facilitate normal neurological function by muscle energy techniques, and release entrapment of the peripheral nerves.
How does Cupping Therapy fit into the entire program?
The effects of manual therapies are greatly increased with Cupping Therapy. It is used successfully to treat all types of therapy patients. Cupping Therapy is a good natural treatment with a promising effect.
How long does it take to see results?
Patients typically see results after 1-3 treatments. With Cupping Therapy, results are achieved quickly, with comfort for the patient.
