Excellent for neck and back pain relief, relaxation and reducing inflammation. Cupping lifts the connective tissue layers off of one another to reduce adhesions and better facilitate circulation and hydration of tissues.
For optimal results, I like to use cupping in conjunction with acupuncture. This reinforces the pain relieving and healing mechanisms of the acupuncture treatment. While also restoring mobility of joints and tissues.
It is important to note that cupping temporarily leaves circular marks on the skin. These marks vary in color and usually fade away with in a few days. However, some markings can last up to 3-4 weeks.
