Cupping is a type of alternative therapy that involves placing cups on the skin. The underlying tissue is raised, or sucked, part way into the cup. This increases blood flow to the cup site and enhances circulation to help relieve pain, inflammation, remove “heat” and alleviate waste products. A small circle may be left on the skin for a few days. The client can experience an immediate reduction in pain, greater range of motion and an overall sense of relief. This therapy is non-invasive and non-fatiguing. It is good for the serious to weekend athlete and those clients who have scars from surgeries or previous injuries.
