Cupping therapy is carried out by placing cups on the skin to create a suction. This form of alternative medicine encourages blood flow and can benefit a range of medical problems.
Cupping massage can help treat pain, muscle knots, swelling, anxiety, fatigue, migraines, respiratory conditions and more. Usually used on the back, neck and shoulders cups are left on for around 5 to 15 minutes depending on your individual needs.
Cupping massage is a much lesser known treatment than acupuncture, but is still very popular in the world of alternative Chinese medicine. Usually used alongside acupuncture, cupping has a particularly relaxing and relieving sensation for many patients.
