Cupping Therapy: An Ancient Healing Art
Cupping therapy is a time-honored alternative medicine employed for thousands of years across different cultures, from China to the Middle East. It entails positioning cups onto the skin and generating a vacuum by heating the air within the cup or using a suction device. This suction gently draws the skin and the superficial muscle layer into the cup, resulting in improved blood flow to the area and the release of tension in the muscles.
