Cupping Therapy is an ancient type of massage that creates a partial vacuum in a jar which is then applied to the body surface. The suction draws up the underlying tissues, strongly promoting circulation and relieving muscular tension. Cupping is most often used for neck tension and headaches, stiff upper back and shoulders, and low back pain.
Cupping therapy leaves behind tell tale red marks which are completely painless. In fact, muscular tension is usually greatly relieved within minutes, while the benefits of improved circulation last much longer.
