2. Helps reduce pain
Perhaps the foremost reason individuals turn to cupping therapy is to seek relief from joint and muscle pain. This is particularly specific to individuals who face lower back issues. In instances where deep injuries occur within the muscles, internal bleeding, bruises and edema also happen. This can all lead to a stagnation of blood in the affected area.
Cupping therapy is carried out in these cases to stir the non-circulating, old blood and bring it to the skin surface so that free circulation of oxygenated blood may be restored and the associated pain relieved.
