What is Chinese Cupping Therapy?

Since the beginning of time pain has affected every person in one way or another. Understanding that pain is the body’s way of letting you know that there is an imbalance can be key. One of the oldest methods of treating pain is Chinese cupping therapy in Toronto, ON. This generally includes using plastic or glass cups to create a type of vacuum suction on various parts of the body. What this can accomplish is increased blood flow which has been proven to effectively mitigate pain.

How is Chinese Cupping Therapy Performed?
Cupping therapy can be performed in one of two ways. The first is the stationary method where the cups are left on a body part for a time of up to 5 to 7 minutes without any movement. The second is referred to as moving cupping therapy. During these treatments, the vacuum pumps move from one section of the back to another. While Chinese cupping therapy may have been around for thousands of years it has definitely come to the forefront of homeopathic treatments. James Harrison of the Pittsburgh Steelers has a treatment done once a month and swears by it for the treatment of aches and pain.
