Dry Cupping therapy is ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on
your skin for a few minutes to create suction. It has been popular in Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle
Eastern cultures going back thousands of years, but increasing numbers of people worldwide have been adopting it. In fact, it has become extremely popular with celebrities and Olympic athletes as well as many famous people around the world.
Dry cupping is used for the treatment of common cold, relaxing the body from tension, and waking up
the energy by using a modifying technique.
What is cupping supposed to do?
According to its advocates, cupping is supposed to promote healing and has been used extensively for sore muscles. Cupping has also been used to help with:
- back and neck pain
- skin diseases such as acne and hives
- lowering cholesterol
- knee arthritis
- improving immune function.
Others get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and
wellbeing. Cupping is thought to draw blood to the affected area, reducing soreness and speeding
healing of overworked muscles. Benefits can include increased lymphatic flow, soft tissue release,
loosening of connective tissue and increased circulation.
