We are all seeing it with the Olympics on TV. Cupping has been around for centuries, it is a form of soft tissue manipulation. It lifts the fascia and stagnant blood from the muscle. Fascia is like a rubber band that encapsulates the muscle. By lifting this we are allowing the muscle to breath per say, expand and rejuvenate or just relax. There really is no other way to lift the fascia than cupping. Cupping also pulls the blood from the muscle allowing fresh new blood to enter thus rejuvenating the muscle even more. As with anything it may not be for everyone. In our world today we have been inundated with pills and chemicals, more and more we are finding out that they may not be the best for us and more and more of us are looking at natural ways of healing and re-leaving our pain. Cupping goes back to ancient Chinese medicine as do oils massage, herbs etc. I have attached a link with more information. If you are thinking about trying it please feel free to contact me and we can find what would work best for you.
Have a Blessed Day,
