Cupping is a healing modality that’s been used for thousands of years by the ancient Chinese and Egyptians. Using round cups, suction is created and placed on the skin. This encourages blood flow and circulation to the area, promoting healing and pain reduction.
Cupping is used by many professional athletes today for acute musculoskeletal pain and injury. It can be used for post workout to increase circulation and speed up recovery time. Cupping also is great for chronic musculoskeletal issues such as chronic back pain and high neck and shoulder muscles. It can be helpful for stress reduction and prevent tension headaches.
