What Is Cupping Therapy?
Cupping Therapy is a millenarian technique of alternative medicine used in ancient China to treat injuries and pains in certain specific areas. This technique consists in applying suction cups also called “Chinese cups or Chinese therapy glasses” in the mentioned key points.
Cupping Therapy, or in English called “cupping”, became worldly popular when Michael Phelps, champion and Olympic record swimmer, had marks on his back. He then gave his testimony on the effectiveness of the therapy in his case, before and during the last Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
Nowadays they are no longer used as traditional Chinese methods, it is usually applied with a suction pump or a rubber bulb being much more practical than in ancient times, where they required a cotton ball soaked in alcohol that burned in the inside of the suction cup to suck the oxygen from inside them.
The use of the Cupping Therapy usually is to alleviate the pain, recover from injuries or to repair the muscular fibers after a very strong training session. It is recommended to undergo this procedure specialized places, sports therapy centers, modern medicine treatment centers specialized for athletes, and chiropractic clinics with the right and expert team.
