4 Reasons to Try the Incredible Cupping Therapy Today

Team - 3:04 AM

Have you heard about cupping therapy? This alternative therapeutic method has become quite popular among athletes in the past few years, but it’s not so known to the public. Experts suggest cupping was used in China ever since 3000 BC. It was probably due to its health benefits that managed to stand the test of time, unlike many other alternative methods.

What is Cupping Therapy?

It is an alternative therapeutic method whose purpose is to remove negative energy from your body. A therapist places specific heated glass or plastic cups on a certain skin area, which creates suction.

The suction, in turn, brings the blood to the surface of your skin in that area. This process in not painful at all, but the only side effects you’ll get are bruises.

Health Benefits of Cupping Therapy

Now that you know how to do this unique therapy, it’s time to learn what benefits you’ll get from it. You might be surprised when you read that certain benefits can even outweigh some modern medicine techniques. Here are the best advantages from cupping therapy:

1. No Side Effects

The first great thing about cupping is that it has no side effects. It’s an alternative method like acupuncture and massages, so it doesn’t pose any risk as opposed to most medications. The only bad thing is that it creates bruises, and nothing else.

2. Pain Reliever

Cupping therapy offers what most people ask for – pain relief. This is, in fact, the reason why a lot of people choose alternative methods to reduce their pain, and being a completely safe method, cupping is the ideal choice for this.

The Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine Journal has reported that this alternative therapy can do the following things:

  • Reduce lower back pain
  • Soothe pain related to respiratory conditions
  • Reduce pain associated with cancer treatments
  • Relax stiff neck and tense muscles
  • Reduce migraine occurrence
  • Improve rheumatism
  • Help with muscle cramps, fatigue, and scar tissue

3. Relaxation

This alternative therapeutic method has calming effects on the central nervous system. Therefore, it can effectively reduce stress responses, thus preventing the development of depression and anxiety.

4. Skin Benefits

Some of the skin benefits you’ll get from cupping therapy include:

  • Reduced cellulite
  • Effective in treatment of herpes zoster
  • Toned and firmer skin
  • Acne removal

Moreover, this method can improve your digestion and immune system. So, it doesn’t have to be just a celebrity fad treatment.

Note: Be careful with cupping therapy if you have edema, skin ulcers, or you’re pregnant since some people can bleed easily. Also, make sure you go to a licensed acupuncturist!

  1. I am 50 years old and I was told I had COPD 10 years ago. I immediately quit smoking, but as the years pass by my situation gets worse, and I started having attacks once a year, then every six months, and later every 3 to 4 months I was in the hospital. I used to be able to exercise, but it was so hard because i was out of breath. I see people say exercise, but understand this, you can`t exercise if you`re out of breath. I live off steroids and became type 2 diabetic from the steroids, but they`were the only medicine that kept me going. No one knows how you really feel unless they have been through your situation, not even some doctors. When the steroids no longer helps, i was introduced to Health herbal clinic in Johannesburg who have successful herbal treatment to COPD and other lungs diseases. I spoke to few people who used the treatment here in USA and they all gave a positive response, so i immediately purchased the copd herbal remedy and commenced usage, i used the herbal supplement for only 9 weeks, all symptoms gradually faded away, herbs are truly gift from God. contact this herbal clinic via their email healthherbalclinic @ gmail. com or visit www. healthherbalclinic. weebly. com
