Have you ever tried cupping therapy?
Cupping therapy is a traditional Chinese therapy that can best be described as the inverse of massage.
Rather than pressure being applied from the outside in, suction is used to pull the skin, tissue and muscle upward.
Cupping involves placing a type of jar on the skin and then creating a vacuum by sucking the air out of the jar.
What are the effects of cupping? Increased circulation, pain relief, and toxin removal just to make a few.
Who should consider cupping? Anyone who seeks relief from stress, spin, allergies, fatigue, flu, colds, back pain, anxiety, muscle aches and many other ailments.
My shoulder has been bothering me for a while now and I had neglected it causing the problem to get pretty deep in my tissue so cupping is a great option to get the blood flowing to the area and ramp up the healing process.
I’m curious if you have ever tried cupping and what are your thoughts?
