Cupping therapy is a thousands of year’s old practice that involves placing a glass cup on a patient’s body and utilizing a small flame to burn out oxygen to creation a vacuum / suction effect. This effect massively increases blood flow to the area of the body temporarily.
• Cupping aims for the deep tissues by generating suction, elevating the skin over the muscles. This action causes the blood vessels and fascia/ soft tissue to expand, resulting in faster blood perfusion to the different parts of the body. The blood brings with them the necessary oxygen and nutrients needed to heal damaged tissues caused by injuries.
• As a result, blood now can get released to those parts of the body where it is needed the most.
• This will then result in the normal distribution of nutrients, oxygen and vitamins throughout the body.
• When tensed muscles get relaxed because of enhanced blood flow, you will feel relief from anxiety and stress.
