What is cupping?
Cupping is an ancient Chinese therapy that involves placing small cups or jars on the skin to create suction. The suction created by the cups draws the skin and underlying tissue into the cup, promoting increased circulation and aiding in the removal of toxins from the body.
Cupping therapy is often used to treat muscle pain, inflammation, and other conditions related to soft tissue injuries. It is also known for its ability to aid in relaxation and promote overall wellness.
There are two main types of cupping therapy: dry cupping and wet cupping. Dry cupping involves placing the cups on the skin and creating suction, while wet cupping involves creating small incisions in the skin to draw out small amounts of blood. Wet cupping is a more invasive form of therapy, and it's not recommended for everyone.
