What is Cupping?
In cupping, practitioners place specialized cups( we use class cups) on the skin. Then they use either heat or an air pump to create suction between the cup and the skin,This suction causes skin to balloon into the cups and blood to rush to the surface of the skin. The bit of created pressure under the cups feels surprisingly relaxing.
After words the cupping markss will showing on the skin as we see on the Olympic , the Cupping marks generally fade after two to four days.
How Does Cupping Work?
According to Chinese medicine, there are fourteen main energy meridians through along the body. Similar to acupuncture, cupping will help unblocking these meridians allows the energy (Qi) to flow freely through the body, remove toxins, and promote healing.
The suction created in the cups can affect muscle tissue deep into the body. This significantly increases blood flow, and as a result, pulls toxins from where they may have been stored, such as the muscles. Once the toxins are released into the blood, they are able to be flushed out of the system through sweat and urination.
