Most people living in the West were unaware of Cupping therapy until it gained notoriety during the 2016 Olympics in Rio.  Cupping therapy is a therapeutic modality which is a part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and has been popular in China since around 1000 B.C.E.   Implements such a wooden or bamboo cups were previously utilized.  Today we use glass or silicone cups.

Cupping therapy, like Acupuncture, has a host of health benefits which often outweigh modern medicine techniques, without the unwanted side effects like pharmacological drugs or surgery.

There is really no downside to utilizing integrative practices like cupping, since studies show they can help boost immune function, reduce inflammation, alleviate pain and speed up healing time without the use of any medications or even herbs.

Some of the other benefits of cupping therapy are realized in Facial rejuvenation, and in regulating the digestive system.
