Cupping therapy is a method used to enhance blood circulation, improve pain control, and remove toxins and waste from the body. Cupping has been used in Chinese, Egyptian and Middle Eastern cultures going back thousands of years. Studies have shown that cupping is able to help with preventing cardiovascular diseases, muscle relaxation, and modulate the immune system. Other studies have also shown that cupping is effective for treating chronic back pain in adults and reduces patients’ pain intensity.
