Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a practitioner of Chinese medicine puts special cups on your skin to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, common cold, asthma, and improved well-being.
Cupping therapy dates back to ancient Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern cultures.
The practitioner puts the warm cup upside down on your skin. As the air inside the cup cools, it creates a vacuum. This causes your skin to rise as your blood vessels expand. The cup is generally left in place for up to 5-15 minutes depending on the diagnosis.
Cupping therapy can help remove toxins from the body and stimulate the flow of blood and qi to the affected area and throughout the body. It can benefit patients with the flu or colds, back and muscle pain, poor circulation, anxiety and overall wellbeing.
