The practice of Cupping as an alternative medicine dates back as early as ancient Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern cultures. The use of cups allows for the stretching and opening of muscle tissue. This lifting creates space to drain toxins from the cells and remove waste through the lymphatic system.
Benefits of cupping therapy include increased circulation, elimination of stagnant blood, sedation of the nervous system, stimulation of the digestive system, and removal of lactic acids from the muscles. Additionally, cupping is also effective against depression, lethargy, anxiety, body aches, high blood pressure, and chronic joint conditions.
