Cupping

We’ve seen so many pictures of many Olympians including Michael Phelps with purple circular red marks of cupping and is making sensation in worldwide. Even though people are discovering what cupping is through these Olympians, cupping has been practiced in Asia, mainly in Korea, China and Japan for thousands years.

Benefits of Cupping:
1. Cupping helps to reduce pain in the body.
It is used for back pain, neck and shoulder pain, knee pain, joint pain, headaches including migraine, and stomachache.
2. Cupping helps treat respiratory issues and colds.
It is considered valuable for the lungs. It can clear congestion from common cold or control asthma. (http://www.pacificcollege.edu/news/blog/2014/09/20/many-benefits-chinese-cupping)
3. Cupping helps promote skin health.
When cupping is applied on the dimpled areas on the body, it can smooth the dimples by creating heat on the area applied on.
