July 3rd, 2009

cupping-glass-1For those of you that are not familiar with what this picture represents, it is actually a form of massage called cupping or suction cupping.  There are many different benefits to this creative and unique massage; however, you want to make sure that it is going to be right for you.  Basically, the process of cupping is going to use the power of suction to draw blood to the one area that is experiencing pain.  Whether the pain is in your neck, back, legs or arms, cupping can be used on any part of your body.

Specifically, cupping is used for chronic pain and can be quite beneficial, however, in America, many Americans are still skeptical as of whether or not it really works.  In most cases, this process is not painful at all and is completed in a very short time, however, it looks painful and that is what most people are scared of.

If you are suffering from chronic pain and have tried everything else – what do you have to lose?  You could have a lot to gain from this method though.
