Cupping therapy or cupping massage is an intensive way to relax muscular knots and thereby an ideal treatment for (muscle) pain. On top and around the painful muscle, the skin and connective tissues will get firmly stimulated by placing a vacuum cup. The underlying area gets well supplied with blood, and as a reflex the underlying muscle area will get relaxed. Due to the increased blood flow and force of the cups also body wastes will be better drained and body tissues renew faster.
This treatment is in particular ideal for back, shoulder and neck problems. In addition, this method is applicable for complaints and chronic colds, flu and lung problems.
