Cupping therapy is not just for Olympic athletes

cupping-massage-therapy-featuredHave you noticed these circular marks on athletes competing at the Olympics? Those are cup marks! Many athletes use cupping to naturally improve health and performance. You don't need to be an elite athlete to receive benefits from this natural therapy.

Cupping therapy is one of the oldest methods of traditional Chinese medicine dating back to the 3000 BC.  In a typical cupping session, glass cups are warmed using a cotton ball soaked in alcohol.  The alcohol is lit on fire then placed inside the cup. As the air inside the cup is warmed then cooled, a vacuum is created.  This vacuum creates strong suction which is used to mobilize blood flow and promote healing.  Cupping enhances circulation, helps relieve pain, and remove toxins. Cupping therapy is not just for Olympic athletes.
