If you are looking for a non-invasive, safe, and effective way to relieve your pain and recover from a condition, you may be an ideal candidate for cupping or laser therapy. These two methods receive a lot of confusion and hesitation, but we are here to explain the many benefits of both of them.

Everything You Need to Know About CUPPING

Cupping is used for many reasons, including relieving pain, promoting relaxation, enhancing blood flow, and easing inflammation. Cupping can sometimes be described as a “tissue distraction release” technique. During the cupping process, the cups are glided across different areas of the body in order to lift and separate tissue.This works to enhance the release of the interfaces between the neural tissues, fascia, skin, ligaments, muscles, and tendons. It relaxes muscles, releases trigger points, improves lymphatic flow, increases local circulation, and releases scar tissue adhesion. Evidence supports cupping as an effective treatment method for several conditions, such as chronic neck pain, low back pain, and fibromyalgia.

There are three forms of cupping techniques: longitudinal, cross fiber, and circular. The most common form is longitudinal, where the cup is glided longitudinally across the muscle fibers. Cross fiber is used when it is believed that the tissue is scarred. Circular is typically used at the end of the session, in order to ensure that all areas were covered. While there are some apprehensions toward cupping, there is a real science behind it.The suction within the cups is created with negative pressure, which helps to increase hydration and blood flow to body tissues, ease up adhesions, and eliminate excess fluids. It is a versatile treatment that can be modified for the necessary treatment of your condition, whether you are in need of deep tissue massage or lymphatic drainage.
