Cupping promotes natural healing by encouraging blood flow and drawing toxins from the body. During this process, cups are placed directly onto the skin, which results in pressure (suction) that draws the skin inwardly. The tissue is drawn up into the cup, which increases blood flow, loosens the fascia or connective tissue and stimulates healing. The upsurge in blood flow brings relief from muscle tension, facilitates circulation, and lessens inflammation. Any round marks (bruising) left behind after the treatment are not only harmless but also proof that your body is detoxing!
