Cupping Therapy is an ancient pain relief modality used in many traditional cultures. Cupping has historically been used in Eastern Asia, Greece, Mexico, and several Eastern European countries. The therapy consists of adhering glass or plastic cups to the body to apply negative pressure. It is like a reverse massage. The tight suction of the cup helps to release the fascia layer and can assist in dissolving myofascial knots. Most patient describe it as a comfortable and relaxing treatment. The discolored marks associated with cupping help to activate the body's inflammatory reduction system. The bruise-like marks trigger the body to send more blood flow to the particular area. Cupping is effective as a standalone treatment or in combination with acupuncture.
