Cupping is an alternative therapy that works by applying glass cups to the surface of the skin and a suction is created through heat. The suction draws blood to the surface and promotes blood circulation.
This depends on your specific situation, but most practitioners recommend a maximum of twice a week. It's important to let your bruises heal before going in for another session.
Cupping costs about $70 on average.
Cupping treatments take 45 minutes on average.
If you've got sore muscles in your back and you're keen to try an ancient Chinese therapy, cupping has your name all over it.
You may feel a little discomfort, like during a massage, but it shouldn't hurt. Be sure to speak up if that's the case. If you have very sensitive or delicate skin, cupping may not be for you.
Staying hydrated is a big one, and you should also have a snack. In traditional Chinese medicine, it's considered important to stay away from chills and water after cupping also. So, shower in the morning.
