The practice of cupping involves using small glass cups and suction to create a local vacuum. When placed over muscles, the seal causes a suction phenomenon known as negative pressure, effectively pulling the interstitial fluids from under and into muscle tissue.
Cupping encourages circulation and blood flow to lymph nodes to allow enzymes and nutrients to clear cellular waste. It is typically done in multiple areas at once and can involve various placements on the body, including; legs, back, chest and neck. There are many benefits of cupping for lower back pain that has been documented in recent years.
As a result, many people have started adding it to their treatment regimen to help them reap the rewards.
Here are some of the most common benefits:
- Resolves chronic muscle tightness
- Increases circulation
- Encourage tissues to release toxins
- Reduces scarring
- Easing the flow of lymph
