Cupping is in some ways the opposite of massage: while massage is sustained compression, performed by applying pressure, cupping instead uses negative static pressure to pull, lift, open, & expand the body's soft tissues. Physiologically, the benefits of massage and cupping are similar, resulting from increased circulation of blood and lymph. The benefits of cupping are as impressive as those of traditional massage. In my experience, cupping can succeed in producing lasting results where other techniques haven't, especially with chronic conditions. Because it is not a compressive technique, cupping can safely be performed directly over the spine and various other bones. This opens more therapeutic options than traditional massage in certain areas of the body. Cupping is also referred to as needless acupuncture.
The Question Isn't, "Who's Getting Cupping Therapy"; It's, "Who's Not?"
