Cupping therapy offers a combination of traditional massage techniques with ancient Chinese cupping medicine to provide pain and inflammation relief while improving blood flow and well-being.
Cupping therapy dates back to traditional Chinese and Middle Eastern medicine designed to lift the tissue up and pull on the fascia, the tissue that covers muscles, to loosen it up and provide greater muscle flexibility and reduce pain.
Cups are left on the body for around five to fifteen minutes at a time. They can burst small blood vessels and leave behind gentle bruising that usually fades within the following five to fourteen days once the treatment’s been done.
In Santiago, Kelly Erceg offers cupping therapy in Las Condes neighborhood.
Benefits of Cupping Therapy
Cupping therapy is based on the idea that the suction from the cups penetrates deep into the layers of the skin, connective tissue and muscle, stretching the skin and clearing the blood vessels. This allows energy, oxygen and blood to flow freely throughout the body, triggering the lymphatic system and improving circulation.
Cupping provides benefits such as:
- Reducing stiffness and muscle cramps
- Reducing scar tissue and accelerated healing
- Alleviating rheumatic diseases such as arthritis and fibromyalgia
- Lowering blood pressure
- Reducing migraines
As beneficial as cupping therapy can be, receivers should consult their physician and massage therapist before to make sure this technique is appropriate for them, since not every patient is fit for it.
