When combined with acupuncture, cupping can be quite an impressive form of treatment. The sucking and negative pressure can loosen muscles, promote blood flow, and sedate your nervous system (this helps those who have high blood pressure).
Cupping helps alleviate many issues, including – back pain, neck pain, stiff muscles, fatigue, anxiety, migraines, rheumatism, and cellulite. It has proven to be one of the best deep tissue therapies in today’s world of chiropractic care, as it can impact tissues that are up to four inches deep from the external skin. Toxins are released, blockages are cleared, and the veins and arteries return to normal working conditions.
Cupping is also an option for those with the common cold and those with asthma. In fact, cupping is most often used for patients with respiratory troubles. It can help clear your skin and improve your circulatory system; many have seen a difference in the color of their skin since beginning cupping therapy.
Another benefit from cupping therapy is an improved digestive system – better metabolism, constipation relief, a healthy appetite, and an overall stronger digestive system. It is also effective in the world of sports, as cupping helps relieve muscle spasms often experienced by athletes.
According to a 2015 report in the Journal of Traditional and Complementary Medicine, cupping proved effective in helping treat acne, pain in general, facial paralysis, cervical spondylosis, and herpes zoster.
