According to the International Cupping Therapy Association (ICTA) website, “Suction cups rapidly facilitate rigid soft tissue release, loosens & lifts connective tissue, breaks up and drains stagnation while increasing blood &lymph flow to skin & muscles in ways not possible using compression.” Once on the surface, it is much easier for the body to eliminate toxins through the superficial blood supply or capillary system. In only ten minutes of cupping, toxin build-up is pulled out of specific areas, as well as pulls the fresh new blood into those areas, which will vitalize and restore proper blood flow. Cupping can enhance qi, blood and circulation, which results in improved mobility and relaxation in an area that is tight or painful, and to also strengthen a weak muscular area.“Cupping is a powerful detoxifying, pain relieving and energy building modality that people all over the world use for health maintenance,” noted ICTA.
