Cupping is a modality within the framework of Chinese Medicine that has been around for thousands of years, in which a local suction is created on the skin. It is used to promote healthy, oxegenated blood flow to an area of the body that is either inflammed, tight, or painful. The skin is gently drawn upwards by creating a vacuum in a cup. The cup(s) stay in place for 5-15 minutes. Cupping is used to treat scarring, musculo-skeletal disorders, spinal conditions, and connective tissue disorders. It decreases swelling, reduces inflammation, and relieves tight, painful muscles. I use it alone, or in conjunction with acupuncture.
