cupping back

Cupping therapy is a way to help people feel better and reduce pain. It’s like a special kind of massage.In cupping therapy, small cups made of glass or plastic are placed on your skin. These cups are like little suction cups. To make them stick to your skin, a therapist removes the air inside the cups. This creates a little vacuum that pulls on your skin. The cups stay in one place for a few minutes or are moved around on your skin. As they do, they can help increase blood flow to the area, which can make your muscles relax and feel better. Sometimes, it can leave round marks on the skin, but these usually go away after a few days.

Cupping therapy is used by some people to help with pain, muscle tension, or to just feel more relaxed. It’s important to have it done by a trained professional, like a therapist or doctor, because they know how to do it safely.
