In The Know: Cupping
I love cupping therapy. It is so adaptable. It can be used for helping relieve chronic pain, enhancing athletic performance or just for relaxation after a hard day at the office.
Cupping therapy has been used for thousands of years, is thought to date back to 3000 years BC and is used in over 60 countries worldwide. The theory behind its benefits is the movement of stagnant fluid: when you have pain or tension or even overworked muscles there is always a degree of stagnation of fluid connected to the inflammatory response. So what cupping does is keep the blood and fluids moving thereby speeding up the healing process. Even Olympic athletes and Hollywood stars have been seen displaying their cupping marks with great pride.
The whole process just takes 10-20 minutes and is usually given as part of a massage or acupuncture treatment for greatest effect. Initially moving cupping is given followed by about 5-10 minutes of stationary cupping. If you dont want to be left with marks I can do a form of cupping that continually releases the pressure of the cups so you still get the benefits but without the marks!
