What is Cupping?
Cupping is a technique that helps to increase circulation to a specific region in an effort to promote healing. It is effective method to stretch tight fascia (connective tissue that surrounds the muscle) and the muscles themselves. Cupping helps the soft tissue develop new blood flow that increases the anti-inflammatory chemicals to that region. Cupping is considered a conservative approach that can enhance the body’s own healing capabilities.
When appropriately performed cupping can:
Increase oxygenation and tissue delivery
Remove old stagnant blood
Create micro trauma and beneficial inflammation
Promote new blood vessel formation
Stretch fascia and connective tissue.
