Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. It has become a very popular treatment to relief muscle pain and muscle tightness. The advantage of cupping over regular massage is that you get a nice stretch on the fascia which is the taut covering over the muscles. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.
Cupping is a wonderful option to improve fascial mobility and decrease muscle pain.
