Cupping Suction Cups
Cupping is a type of alternative therapy that originated in China. It involves placing cups on the skin to create suction. The suction may facilitate healing with blood flow.
It is commonly used for back problems and other general aches and pains. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage. An increase in blood circulation can relieve muscle tension which improves blood flow and can promote cell repair. This can also lead to new connective tissues and new blood vessels created in the tissue. It loosens muscles and helps prevent muscle spasms, which is why it is popular among athletes. The idea is that this suction helps create healthier fascia, which translates into more flexibility and better muscle recovery (Flinn). It can help to release toxins, clear out blockages, create energy flow, and improve blood flow through veins and arteries.
A recent review of the treatment describes cupping as a treatment that can strengthen the body’s resistance, restore balance between positive and negative forces, remove disease-causing factors, and promote blood circulation (Shmerling, 2016).
