Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage. Physical Therapists at One on One use cupping to treat muscle and soft tissue injuries like Cervical Dystonia. Cupping increases warmth and circulation to an injured region of the body and releases toxins from the muscles and soft tissues. Following your cupping sessions, it is normal to feel an overall feeling of lightness and relaxation.
