Cupping is a form of alternative medicine that does not use the ingestion or use of any medicines. Therefore, the risks that are involved considerably lower than others, and there are little to no side effects that can occur. If you find yourself in pain and have used up all options that generally are used and have opted out of continuing the use of traditional medicine, then Cupping is the solution you are looking for.
Pressure is applied to the points that are causing you pain, and the blood flow begins to increase in the area within the vessels and capillaries which ease the muscles and helps to supply nutrients and oxygen that your body sorely needs.
Cupping can target these points of pain accurately and naturally reduce joint or muscle pain. Cupping works to release the tension in the tissue in your body and in doing so can relax these sore muscles, ease neck and back pain, and relax tired and tense muscles.
Cupping is essentially the inverse of the typical massage therapy. Instead of exerting pressure on the different points of the body for healing, Cupping uses suction to tug the skin, tissues, and muscles upwards forcing fresh blood to reach the areas that have aches and pains and in doing so help kickstart and quicken the healing process.
When the practitioner exerts suction on the different points on the body by way of Cupping, certain changes occur inside the body. These changes stimulate the body to heal itself.
The results are:
1. Promoting the flow of blood to the muscles and tissues, and removing stagnation.
2. Supplying oxygen and nutrients to the cells.
3. Softening the tightened muscles.
4. Loosening of adhesions and knots.
5. Lifting the connecting tissues.
6. Opening the blockages of the lymphatic nodes and easing the flow of lymph.
7. Releasing and draining of excess fluids and toxins like lactic acid from the tissues and cells.
8. Drawing inflammation from the deeper tissues to the surface of the skin so they can heal.
9. Stimulating and later, calming the peripheral nervous system.
10. Eliminating chronic congestion
