What Is Cupping Therapy
– Create a complete muscle healing affect
Cupping therapy is a Traditional Chinese Medicine therapy that has been used for more than 3,000 years. It involves using special cups to apply suction over the skin of an affected area. The negative pressure created in the cup causes the skin to draw upward into the cup.
The cups are then left in place or moved around the skin to improve the blood flow in the area, rid the body of toxins, improve general well-being, and help with many different ailments, including pain, inflammation and infections. Cupping increases blood circulation, relieve pain, removes toxins from the body, and activates the immune system.
Why Cupping Therapy
– Increasing Blood Circulation
When blood gets sucked into the area underneath the cup, local blood circulation increases. This increased blood circulation extends down to the muscle layer, helping cells that are in the area to repair faster.
This also increases granulation and angiogenesis, the formation of new connective tissue and blood vessels, during wound recovery. This can help heal soft tissue injury, relieve muscle tension, and stop pain. Cupping can simulate the immune system, make the body more resilient to disease, and have healing properties.
– Relieving Pain
Cupping is well-known for helping to relieve pain. It has also been shown to activate acupuncture points, and acupuncture is well-known in helping to relieve pain in a few different ways. Cupping methods can also relieve pain by loosening adhesions in the muscles or fascia.
It lifts the fascia from the muscle, which can help reduce muscle tightness and relax the muscles. Another way cupping helps relieve pain is by bringing blood to stagnant skin and muscles, at the same time draining waste such as lactic acid from the muscles.
– Removing Toxins
Cupping has been shown to remove damaged blood from the affected area. The damaged blood can contain inflammatory chemicals, broken-down cells, clotted blood, scar tissue, or other substances that can cause pain and prevent healing. The increase in blood circulation in the area allows the toxins trapped in the soft tissue layers to rise to the body surface.
Cupping can increase lymph flow also. The lymphatic system is part of the immune system that helps the body get rid of toxins, waste, and other unwanted materials, and helps to circulate white blood cells throughout the body.
– Treatment of Sports injuries and Pain management
Cupping can also relieve muscle tension, help release the fascia, and physically break up adhesions or knots. Treatment not only works on the muscles but can activate the nerves that help block pain signals, as well.
It can help nerves release certain neurotransmitters and endorphins, which help to stop the sensation of pain. It also increases pain threshold, which means more stimulus is needed to trigger pain.

Has a direct result of increased microcirculation, the lymphatic system is also excited and stimulated. The extra activity of the lymphatic system inevitably results in improved lymphatic drainage and the elimination of waste matter, reinforcing the entire immune system.
