Cupping is a type of alternative therapy that originated in China. It
involves placing cups on the skin to create suction. The suction
facilitates healing by increasing
blood circulation to the area where the cups are placed. This can
relieve muscle tension, which can improve overall blood flow and promote
cell repair. It can also help form new connective tissues and create
new blood vessels in the tissue. People use cupping to complement their
care for a host of ailments and conditions in our office.
