Cupping is a technique that uses glass cups on the skin in areas of pain or congestion. Suction is applied which increases circulation and breaks up stagnation. The results are increased blood flow, more nutrients and oxygen to the area, and increased waste removal. Patients experience less pain and better function in areas that have been cupped. It’s also very relaxing. Cupping is great for chronic tight, stiff muscles, injury recovery, and cold and flu prevention.
