Cupping is an alternative therapy originating in China. The therapy involves placing cups on the skin to create suction. The suction increases blood flow to that area of the body and so promotes healing.
With dry cupping, the cup is set in place for approx 5 to 10 minutes. The suction increases blood circulation to the area where the cups are placed and this helps relieve muscle tension and promote cell repair. The suction, which is created during cupping, can cause bruising which may last for up to 2 weeks after the therapy. Cupping is often used in conjunction with another therapy.
