Cupping therapy is a form of alternative medicine in which cups are placed on the skin to create suction. It is believed that cupping therapy can reduce pain and inflammation throughout the body. Also promotes mental and physical relaxation and well being. Cupping is one of the best deep tissue therapy available. It is thought to affect tissues up to four inches deep from the external skin. Toxins can be released, blockages can be cleared, and veins and arteries can be refreshed within these four inches of affected materials.
