Cupping is a therapeutic practice that involves placing cups on the skin to create suction. The cups can be made of glass, bamboo, or silicone. The suction pulls the skin and underlying tissue into the cup, promoting blood flow, reducing muscle tension, and encouraging healing. It's believed to help with pain relief, relaxation, and improving overall blood circulation. The distinctive circular marks left by the cups on the skin typically fade within a few days. Cupping may be part of your STRONG. chiropractic or physiotherapy appointments.
