Cupping helps to increase the blood flow to sore areas in muscles. It provides necessary nutrients to the area being treated and promotes healing. Cupping can provide pain relief and help ease the symptoms of many common disorders of the bones and muscles.
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. 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.
Cupping (Wet or Dry) is contraindicated for extreme Yin-Xu (fluid deficient) people, in people suspected of haemorrhage of any kind, and on tumours of any form, including tuberculosis. Also, cupping of any kind is contraindicated for people who have suffered a cardiac arrest in the last 6 months.
