Cupping Therapy is an ancient Chinese form of alternative medicine in which a local suction is created on the skin; practitioners believe this mobilizes blood flow in order to promote healing. It can also relieve tension, loosen muscles, promote blood and lymph circulation, detoxification and healing. It has also been said to sedate the nervous system which makes it an excellent treatment for high blood pressure. Suction is created using mechanical devices (hand or electrical pumps). The vacuum formed by cupping stimulates the non-circulating, stagnant blood area, bringing it to the surface and away from the site of injury. This results in effective, free circulation of the oxgenated, reparing agents carried by the new blood, that restores healthy circulation and well-being to the affected area. Cupping is great pain-free treatment for neck, shoulder and back injuries. It has also been employed to treat sore muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraines, rheumatism and even cellulite.
