Cupping is a form of alternative medicine that is used to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and wellness. This technique uses specialized cups that are suctioned to the skin. The cups are then either left stationary or moved over an area to draw the blood to the surface.
It can be used to treat conditions like migraines, cervical spondylosis, fibromyaglia, arthritis, asthma, allergies, dementia, depression and anxiety.
I have a Facebook post that shows somebody getting extreme cupping and entitled my repost "No sir/mama." There is no way I thought I would ever do cupping. It was not until cupping was the only option for a client of mine that I considered it. Once I learned the therapeutic value it can have in treating a wide variety of elements I became hooked. Now it is the fourth top massage therapy that I use to treat people.
