Though the cupping craze has only been around for a few years, the practice itself has been around for much longer. Cupping has been practiced as a form of alternative medicine since the beginnings of time but there’s a great deal of dispute on where it originated—some considering it to be the Chinese, while others deeming it came from the Ancient Egyptians. But regardless, cupping has a rich history tied with a vast number of cultures, most recently expanding to the West. So how does it work? During a cupping session, your specialist will apply special rounded cups directly to your skin. These bulb-shaped cups are first heated, in order to create a suction effect on the skin. They’re then left on the skin for several minutes, drawing the skin into them as they cool. The benefits include improved blood circulation, reduced pain and inflammation, as well as an increased level of relaxation. Cupping can be used to help treat numerous different conditions. Although there haven’t been very many studies done on cupping, research does speculate that cupping can help with treating acne, shingles, facial paralysis, dyspnea, lumbar disc herniation, migraines, anxiety, depression, and varicose veins.
