Cupping Therapy in Hollywood
Cupping Therapy, also known as skin cupping, vacuum cupping, or just cupping, involves placing round cups directly on your skin to relieve pain from injuries, strains, sprains, inflammation, and more. It’s not a new type of therapy, and actually has been used thousands of years ago by both the ancient Chinese and Egyptians.
When the cups are placed on the skin (they are sometimes heated and sometimes manually pumped to create suction), they encourage blood flow by the suction they produce. This increased blood circulation promotes healing and reduces pain. While cupping sessions can leave discoloration from broken blood vessels just beneath the skin, any side effects should disappear within 7-10 days.
