Cupping is applied suction to a specific area of the body. Cupping is best used for muscle pain and increased blood circulation, as well as, being good for some joint pain. Today cupping is also used as a method for detox, and is wildly popular in the celebrity based community. Stars like Jennifer Aniston and Gwenyth Paltrow have, too, been spotted with cupping marks on their backs.
Cupping is a painless procedure that feels like a deep tissue massage when movement is applied. The area of choice for cupping therapy will become red, showing signs of increased blood circulation, and will relieve pain or muscle soreness. Most areas only require 5 to 6 minutes of moving cupping therapy.
No movement cupping is good for detox, bronchitis, and the common cold. This form of cupping may sometimes leave marks or bruising on the body that will heal naturally.
