What Is Cupping Therapy?
Cupping therapy is one of the most ancient therapies that managed to survive until present day. It was developed more than 3000 years ago in different parts of the globe, starting in Egypt and China.
Nowadays, cupping therapy is mostly useful with musculoskeletal diseases, especially those of the trunk and its proximity - namely back, hips, shoulders and neck.
How Does Cupping Therapy Work?
Oxygen and nutrients reach all body cells with the blood flow. On the other hand, lactic acid and carbon dioxide produced by our cells (the so called cell waste), are cleared also by a good and healthy blood flow.
When tissue is overloaded or injured – adhesions occur there. This leads to limited motion, pain and reduction of blood flow. Limited blood flow causes insufficient supply of oxygen and nutrients and cells waist accumulation.
Cupping stretches out the fascia, removes adhesions and relieves motion of the tissues. Likewise, it helps to pull out the accumulated cells waist from the deeper layers.
