What is cupping?
Cupping is a type of alternative therapy that involves placing cups on the skin to create suction. This suction will improve the flow of energy in the body and facilitate healing.
How does cupping work?
Cupping helps facilitate healing in parts of the body that might be experiencing pain or discomfort. The suction of the cup will create new blood flow to the area. Once this happens, new blood vessels will develop. This is why cupping is effective and long-lasting. New vessels have the capability to feed the tissues with nutrients and oxygen, all of which are needed to heal and thrive.
What does cupping treat?
Cupping is very effective in treating patients with digestive problems, menstrual problems, respiratory problems like coughing or wheezing, as well as many other aches and pains. It causes the tissues to release toxins and then removes them through stimulation of the lymphatic system.
It has been estimated that more than 90 percent of Americans live in jeopardy of having a serious illness relating to the circulatory system. Cupping is best used as a preventive treatment, but where there is a disease, cupping can help the body heal itself without the use of drugs or going through surgery.
