What is Cupping Therapy?

What is cupping therapy and how can it help you?

Cupping is a form of traditional Chinese and Middle Eastern medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People have practiced cupping therapy for thousands of years. Patients get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.

Suction from cupping draws fluid into the treated area. This suction force expands and breaks open tiny blood vessels (capillaries) under the skin. Your body treats the cupping area like an injury. It sends more blood to the area to stimulate the natural healing process. Some people theorize that cupping clears the pores and releases toxins.
