Six Reasons Why You Need Cupping Therapy in Toronto

Watching multi-gold-medalist Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps exit from the swimming pool at the 2016 Brazil Olympics, the world saw the red circles on his shoulders and back.  With such a positive endorsement, overnight Traditional Chinese Cupping became a very popular treatment for neck, shoulder and back pain.

Need more incentive?  Here are 6 reasons why you need to try cupping therapy in Toronto to remedy your pain:

1. Relief from pain can be immediate

Once the cups are removed and you have a chance to roll your shoulders and flex your back, you will notice that the pain is gone, or dramatically diminished, and your range of motion has improved.

 

2. Cupping is one of the best deep-tissue therapies available

Cupping can stimulate tissues deep below the skin. Considered to be an inverse style of massage, the cups stay in place for a full 10 minutes, allowing for an intense upward pull over an extended period of time.  As the cups are released, this creates a relaxing sensation across the muscles.

 

3. Cupping rejuvenates the muscles

By increasing blood flow to the muscles, you can recuperate from your workouts faster and more fully.  This will allow for greater intensity during your workouts.  If your back and neck pain relates to a repetitive-strain injury, cupping will help your muscles cope better.

 

4. Cupping is not invasive

There is no breaking of the skin.  Although cupping will leave red circles, they will disappear over 2-4 days. Unlike with medications, there are no side-effects, and no downtime.

 

5. Cupping can relieve pain in the areas surrounding the spine

The neck, shoulders, upper back, area between the shoulder blades, mid back, lower back, and buttocks can all benefit from cupping therapy.

 

6. Cupping can ease a variety of health issues

Cupping can treat health conditions including anxiety/depression, high blood pressure, migraines/headaches, fatigue, cellulite, and lung congestion from a common cold.

 

Cupping, like acupuncture, is a Traditional Chinese Medicine healing method that has been around for over two thousand years. Try cupping therapy in Toronto, Vaughan and the GTA, and feel great again!
