Chinese Cupping Therapy involves heated glass cups which are then applied to the skin by suction. Consider it similar to a deep tissue massage.
By creating suction this moves stagnation and promotes blood flow to the local area. The benefits of Cupping include improvement in circulation and alleviated pain in the local area that the cupping is being applied to.
Cupping therapy is effective for musculoskeletal tightness and pain, digestive issues, the common cold and flu and other health conditions.
