When you are experiencing pain in your body, a local chiropractor may be able to naturally help you to heal and decrease the level of pain. At Magnolia Wellness Center in Tallahassee, we offer natural treatments to help improve your health and overall well-being. One of the treatments that we offer is cupping.
What Is a Cupping Treatment?
During a cupping treatment, small cups are placed on the affected part of your body, such as your back, shoulders, or legs. In most cases, heat is then used to help the cups stick to your body, creating suction. The cup latches onto your skin and the tissue below. As it does this, it helps to naturally increase the blood flow to the area. The cups are left in place for about five to ten minutes to ensure that your blood is flowing well to that part of the body before the cups are removed.
What Cupping Is Used to Treat
Cupping is a technique that dates back hundreds of years. It is believed that cupping can heal everything from fatigued muscles to strained muscles to acne to coughs. Most people use cupping to help heal tired or sore muscles. Many athletes use cupping to help heal their muscles after a long event. Some people who are suffering from injuries, such as car accident injuries, use cupping to help decrease their pain and help their body to heal.
The Benefits of Cupping Treatments
Cupping is a safe and natural treatment. When you are dealing with fatigued, sore or damaged muscles, many other treatments involve the use of pain prescription medication or surgical intervention. Both of these options have many negative side effects associated with them. Cupping is safe to use, has few side effects for healthy individuals, and helps your body to heal naturally. The most common side effect associated with cupping is slight bruising where the cups were placed, which is a very minimal side effect, especially when compared to the other options.
