Cupping Therapy

Cupping Therapy

Cupping therapy has gained a lot of attention lately as many Olympic athletes are displaying the circular bruising that is indicative of this type of therapy.  Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a special cups are placed on your skin for a few minutes to create suction with use of heat.  Nowadays, cupping sets use suction guns to create the vacuum. The vacuum inside the cups causes the blood to form in the area and help the healing in that area. Another healing aspect of cupping therapy is through the release of toxins in your body. The suction from the cups can penetrate deep into your tissues causing the tissues to release harmful toxins. It triggers the lymphatic system, clears the blood vessels, and stretches and activates the skin
