How Cupping Works?
People use cupping in addition to traditional treatments and therapies.
With dry cupping, a plastic or glass cup is placed on the skin, then the air inside the cup is suctioned or vacuumed out. The cups can be used at rest or with movement and application time usually ranges from five to 10 minutes.
Cupping increases blood circulation at the point of the injury. Proponents say the increased circulation reduces tension and spasms, and can promote cell repair through improved blood flow. People who use cupping also report that it can reduce pain and disability and increase range of motion. Proponents also say that cupping is helpful for chronic low back and neck pain.
