Cupping is a method of treatment I use that involves using glass cups and suction to create a vacuum. When applied to an area of the body the suction helps circulation in that area. I have found Cupping particularly good when treating the bigger muscle groups especially for back and neck pain. Problems with the rotator cuff, swimmers shoulder and frozen shoulder respond well to cupping . It has a moving quality that can help with old and stagnant injuries as it creates new inflammation that the body responds to, bringing about a new healing phase.
Cupping can leave bruises on the body and if this is an issue for you it is not an advisable option
