What is Cupping Therapy?

Cupping is a great compliment to chiropractic and physical therapy! Cups are placed on the body and negative pressure is used to create suction to lift or distract tissue.  Cupping is different from massage in that rather than the muscles being pressed down, they are pulled up using this vacuum effect.  Cupping is also referred to as vacuum therapy or microcirculation therapy.
