Cupping therapy can actually be dated back to 3000BC, and since then has been used as an official method for short-term pain relief and for increased movement and blood flow. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.
Cupping by your Myofusion therapist invigorates local circulation of blood in the area being treated, resolving swelling, pain, and tension. By drawing impurities to the surface, it removes toxins. From a Western physiology perspective, cupping loosens connective tissue or fascia and stimulated blood flow to the surface.
