Cupping Therapy can help relieve pain, inflammation & increase blood flow to help with healing. It can also help break up adhesions (scar tissue). 

Cupping Therapy uses a cup to create suction on the skin to break capillaries causing blood to come to the surface of the skin. This will often make a bruise that will last for several days.

Cupping Therapy is a form of Ancient Chinese Medicine that has been around for thousands of years and is used all over the world. It started to become popular several years ago when Olympic athletes sported their cupping bruises.

The folks at Achedaway sent me their Achedaway Cupper to help demonstrate how to use cupping therapy. The Achedaway Cupper also has infrared light therapy as an added treatment. It is an automated cupping device that uses dynamic suction to help enhance healing.
