Cupping

Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. The suction will increase blood flow to area where the cup is placed. The tissues under the cup will be lifted, which will help separate and release the fascia (connective tissue) from the underlying muscles.This promotes blood flow to the compromised area, enhances circulation and helps to increase the body’s own healing processes.
