Cupping is a ancient therapy that many people find relaxing and invigorating. Athletes use cupping for muscle pain and stiffness because it is one of the best deep-tissue therapies available. Cupping can also be used to treat respiratory conditions such as asthma, and skin conditions such as eczema and poison oak. Cupping opens the paths through which energy flows in the body's vessels, tissues, and organs. I use cupping to release toxins, clear blockages, stop pain, and refresh veins and arteries.
