Cupping Therapy

Cupping Therapy is the method of using glass or plastic cups to create localized pressure by a vacuum. 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 occur. The increased circulation created by this method helps to dissolve adhesions; normalize the position of the soft tissue ,and release its torsion; lengthen the connective tissue; hydrate the joints; and facilitate normal neurological function by muscle energy techniques.
