Cupping uses suction cups that are placed on the skin to disperse and break up stagnation and congestion by drawing congested blood to the surface. The suction in the cups causes the skin and superficial muscle layers to be drawn into the cup. The cups are left in place 10-15 minutes. The purpose of cupping is to enhance circulation, help relieve pain and pull out the toxins that linger in your body's tissue.
Cupping releases tissue deep inside the body, loosens tight muscles and encourages blood flow. It is used to relieve back and neck pain, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraines, muscle cramps, joint pain, scar tissue, rheumatism and even cellulite.
For most patients, this is a particularly relaxing and relieving sensation.
Coloring on the skin typically ranges from bright red to a darker purple and can last from 3-10 days. Darker coloring means that there is a high level of toxins and stagnation in the area treated.
The two most common types of cupping treatments is fixed cupping and moving cupping. Fixed cupping are placed on a selected area of the body and left in place for 10-15 minutes. Moving cupping uses massage oil and gently moves the suctioned cup over the area to be treated.
