TCM – Cupping in Toronto

cuppingAs a traditional form of alternative medicine, cupping dates back to ancient cultures, including those in China and the Middle East. It involves placing cups (including glass, plastic, or silicone) on the skin to create suction, which promotes healing by drawing blood to the affected area, thereby improving blood flow and reducing pain.

You may recall seeing Michael Phelps sporting purple circular marks during the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. The famous swimmer chose cupping to address muscle soreness and pain.


Benefits Beyond Pain Relief

If you’re looking for a natural way to relieve your pain, cupping may benefit you. It can address discomfort ranging from chronic back pain to migraines.

However, its healing effects are not limited to pain relief alone. Cupping can also provide relief to those with respiratory disorders like asthma and bronchitis. That’s because this therapy improves blood flow and oxygen distribution in the lungs.

Additionally, stimulating blood flow during a cupping session can boost your immune response by improving blood circulation. This results in an overall improvement in your body’s natural protective mechanisms and resilience against diseases.

Another reason people enjoy their cupping sessions is because this therapy promotes deep relaxation. Similar to a deep-tissue massage, cupping works to reduce stress levels and instill a sense of calmness.
