It’s not just for Olympic Athletes.
Cupping therapy has been an effective treatment for pain and illness for thousands of years. It traditionally has been used in both the east and west for a variety of conditions such as lung ailments, muscle pain and tightness, emotional stress, headaches and fever just to name a few.
Cupping is painless, pleasant and relaxing. It has no side affects aside from a possible temporary darkening of the skin where the cup was placed. Cupping uses a pump to create a vacuum pull on the tissue thereby facilitating better healing blood flow and a release of muscle tension and pain. It has been shown to be more effective than massage in reducing acute and chronic pain.
