There’s no denying living through a pandemic is rough, so feeling tense is understandable. Restless sleeps, bad posture at your make-shift home office, and even a clenched jaw can all lead to neck and back pain. Pain that makes living life incredibly difficult.
While you might opt for a massage or chiropractic treatment to regain your alignment (both great options!), cupping is a great add-on to these services. Cupping is backed by years of evidence. If you’re in need of some extra relaxation to get through your work week, then cupping might be the treatment for you!
what is cupping?
Cupping is an ancient Chinese therapy used to treat a variety of ailments and illnesses. Some of the benefits of cupping include improved muscle relaxation and blood circulation throughout the body.
During a cupping session, small cups are suctioned to the skin, either with heat or a pump. The skin and everything beneath it is drawn up into the cup, leading to less tension. While typically harmless, there is a chance of bruising in the treatment area. Be sure to discuss the after-effects with your RMT practitioner.
Can cupping work for you?
If you find yourself dealing with neck and back tightness or a specific injury, cupping could be the right alternative medical therapy to get you back on your feet.
