What Are The Uses Of Cupping Therapy?
Cupping therapy is a form of alternative medicine which involves a therapist places special cups made out of either silicone, earthenware, bamboo or glass. Cupping therapy dates back to the mid 16th century so it isn’t a new type of therapy and it’s certainly very popular. Cupping is an excellent form of non invasive treatment, which can really benefit tired aching muscles, especially in athletes. The reverse pressure exerted during cupping works to pull the tissue from bone, allowing better blood flow to the area.
