What Is Cupping Therapy?
Though it has only recently gained mainstream attention, cupping therapy is a very popular alternative treatment that dates back to ancient Egyptian civilization. In principle, the cups create a suction that pulls the skin upward, promoting a wide variety of healthy functions within the body to restore balance and ease pain. Cupping therapy is offered by the highly experienced team at Great Expectations Family Practice and Medispa to help Lawton, OK patients relax, increase blood flow, alleviate pain, and reduce inflammation. Visit us today to meet with our massage therapists to learn more about this technique.
How Does Cupping Therapy Work?
Our highly skilled massage therapists may use cups made of glass, plastic, bamboo, ceramic, metal, or silicone. Once you are lying comfortably, we will heat the cups with a flame. Once heated, the open side of the cups will be placed on predetermined sections of your skin. While these are usually placed on the back, they can also be placed on the chest, abdomen, buttocks, or legs. The placement of the hot cup onto the skin causes the air inside the cup to cool, creating a vacuum that pulls the skin and muscles into the cup itself. These cups will be left on the skin for several minutes before they are eventually removed. The suction from cupping will break open tiny blood vessels under the skin, forming bruises that will fade in a couple of weeks.
