Overview of Cupping Therapy in Physiotherapy
Cupping Therapy is an age-old treatment that has found its way into modern physiotherapy due to its unique healing capabilities. Using special cups that create suction on the skin, this therapy aids in improving blood flow, reducing pain, and promoting relaxation.
How Cupping Therapy Works:
By creating a vacuum inside the cups and placing them onto the skin, the underlying tissues are drawn up into the cups. This process increases blood circulation to the area, stimulating muscle recovery and facilitating detoxification by drawing out toxins.
