Reasons Why You Should Try Cupping Therapy

Cupping therapy is a form of traditional acupuncture that originated in China. Cups are placed on the skin to create suction, which increases the blood flow to that area. Increasing the blood circulation helps to relieve muscle tensions, promote cell repair, and even form new connective tissue in the body.

This type of therapy is very versatile and can be customized to fit the needs of the client. The cups are moved over the skin with different rotating techniques. The suction created by the cups can reach deep into your soft tissue and pull inflammation and toxins to the surface. Cupping therapy is very helpful for people who suffer from chronic pain, as well as many other conditions.

How does acupuncture help the body heal?

The human body runs on electricity. Rather, it creates electricity at a cellular level. When you're injured or sick, your body's normal electrical pathways often become disrupted. Acupuncture works by correcting this energy flow.
