CUPPING: ARTHRITIS AND JOINT PAIN - How it works!!!

Cupping has incredible effects on the joints and offers tremendous relief to those suffering from joint pain by interacting with the anatomic and physiologic pathologies that cause arthritis.

One of the most noteworthy effects of cupping is that it activates the secretion of synovial fluid, aiding in the release of joint stiffness in ways not possible with other therapies.

The suction of the cups rapidly facilitates the release of rigid soft tissue by stretching it up from underlying structures.

It then loosens the areas of adhesion or restriction which activates muscle spindle reflexes that forces the contractile tissue to relax and thus retraining the myofascial structures.

It creates localized expansion of tissue, producing a profound vasodilatation reaction which draws blood flow to areas of ischemic pain.

This also: raises the skin temperature, promotes metabolism within the tissue, flushes capillary beds, drains stagnant blood, toxins and lymph, and re-supplies vital nutrients to the system.
