Shannon Discusses the Benefits of Cupping with WBAL & 98 ROCK
Cupping is an ancient traditional Chinese medicine therapy/tool in which the practitioner places a special cup made of glass or bamboo onto your skin for a few minutes to create a suction. It can be used to help many issues such as muscular tension or pain, respiratory issues to increase blood flow, relaxation, and many other syndromes. Cupping can be combined with an acupuncture treatment or used alone, and it is similar to acupuncture in that it follows the lines of the meridians. There are five meridians channels of energy along the back in which the cups are usually placed. Other areas can be cupped as well such as arms, wrists, neck, legs, etc.
