Cupping has shown very beneficial for many conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, sciatica, insomnia, tension, chronic disorders, anxiety, fatigue, poor circulation, edema, sports injuries, cellulite, nervous tension, chronic headache, fibromyalgia, rheumatism, neuralgia, and menstrual problems. It is suitable for pain relief, diseases of the digestive, circulatory and respiratory systems, some skin conditions, facial paralysis, weak muscles and the common cold.
Cupping pulls stagnation out of the tissues and brings it to the skin level. The pores expand discharging some of these wastes and toxins. The rest is then more accessible to the body’s circulatory and lymphatic system where it can be properly flushed out. It also brings fresh revitalized blood to the stagnant areas.
