What is cupping therapy?
Cupping is a technique of Traditional Chinese Medicine that consists precisely in the application of cups that produce a strong suction cup effect.
It is thanks to this effect that cupping can induce a very powerful movement of energy and blood circulation that also extends to the soft tissues.
For this reason it is particularly useful in the majority of cases where muscular or acute pain is present.
Does cupping leave bruises?
Sometimes the cups can leave small hematomas in a circle of more or less pronounced visibility but in any case destined to be reabsorbed quickly and without leaving any consequences.
For this reason, the cupping technique is always applied only after providing the patient with a very detailed explanation and therefore after receiving explicit approval.
Essential, and therefore always performed before cupping, is an assessment of the skin and dermis tissue to check for inflammation, damage or irritation, or protruding capillaries or melanomas, cases in which cupping cannot be applied
