Discover The Benefits Of Cupping Therapy As An Alternative To Massage

Are you struggling with a pulled muscle or niggling injuries in your back, legs, or shoulders that are stopping you from getting out for a walk or doing the weekly shop?

We know you probably feel like you’ve tried everything from ice and heat therapy to exercises and it hasn’t eliminated the pain, or if it has, it’s been very short-term.

It can be frustrating not being able to find a long-term solution to your aches and pains, however, cupping therapy might be the answer you’ve been looking for!

In this blog, cupping therapy is explained by its use, who it’s for, and the benefits it could provide you with so you get back to a pain-free life, doing the things you love.

What Is Cupping Therapy?

Cupping therapy is the process of placing cups onto areas such as your back, shoulders, and legs in order to provide deep tissue therapy.

The cups that are placed on your skin create suction to encourage circulation within your muscles and relieve the pain you’re experiencing from your injury.

What Are The Benefits Of Cupping Therapy?

Cupping has been used for many years and can be beneficial for a number of different reasons.

It can be used to release muscular tension and pain caused by injuries such as pulled or torn muscles.

It also decreases inflammation you may experience due to a sudden injury like a rotator cuff tear or sprain.

Cupping therapy is also often used in conjunction with or as an alternative to massage as both are treatment options that work well together and just as well on their own!

What About Cupping Marks, Do They Go Away?

You may have seen people after cupping therapy that have cupping marks and they often look like octopus suckers.

But there’s no need to worry! Cupping therapy marks often fade within 2 weeks after you’ve received your treatment, that’s if you get them at all.

Some people bruise easily and for others, it’s very difficult, it’s all down to the individual and their body, we’re all different after all!

If you are someone that bruises easily and you’re worried about the appearance of the marks, you don’t have to stress as you will always be able to cover them up until they fade.

Does Cupping Therapy Hurt?

Although it may look and sound scary if you’ve seen or know someone who has done cupping therapy, it is a painless experience and can often leave patients feeling very relaxed after their treatment.

Cupping is a safe, and proven way to relieve pain and help you recover from any aches that are stopping you from enjoying an active, pain-free life doing what you love.

Who Is Cupping Therapy For?

Cupping is perfect for people who want to recover from pulled muscles, strains, and niggling injuries in their legs, back, and shoulder but are hypersensitive to hands-on massage treatments.

Have you ever had a massage and found the pressure too much for your pain tolerance?

Cupping is a fantastic alternative to massage in this instance as cupping doesn’t involve the pressure that you would normally feel during a massage, only placing the warm cups on the location of your injury.
