What is Cupping?
This practice involves placing small cups on the skin to create gentle suction. This suction provides a variety of benefits, for example, it can help to draw in fresh blood flow to facilitate the healing of damaged tissues or injured muscles and tendons. In addition, cupping can serve as a kind of deep tissue massage, allowing muscle and tendon fibers to separate where they have been knotted together due to injury or overuse.
Overall, cupping is an effective and highly beneficial therapy that can promote healing and deliver other physical and mental health benefits. So if you're looking for a new way to boost your overall well-being, visit Velocity Physical Therapy in Freehold NJ
How Does Cupping Therapy Work?
Cupping therapy involves using cups, typically made of strong glass, and attaching them to the body through suction. A flame is placed in an upside-down cup which burns off the oxygen and creates a vacuum within the cup. The cup is then placed on the skin, forming a strong suction.
During a treatment, multiple cups may be placed across the body. Each cup stimulates blood-flow and pulls harmful toxins from the body.
