Cupping is an ancient form of massage therapy and it is extremely effective. The magic of cupping therapy can work out the toughest of chronic pain- including shoulder pain! If you suffer from shoulder pain or discomfort, read on to find out how suction cup treatment can heal you.
What Causes Shoulder Pain?
‘Shoulder pain’ is a pretty broad term for anything that causes discomfort to your shoulder. This pain can be caused from any irritation of the joint or the muscles, ligaments, and tendons that support the actual joint. Pain in our joints, muscles, etc. can be from chronic diseases, but also from everyday use. The strain on the shoulder can stem from (but is not limited to), sleeping on your side, overuse of the joint, using your shoulder wrong, sprain, strain, bursitis (inflammation), and more.
How Can Cupping Therapy Help?
When receiving cupping massage therapy, suction cups are placed on the problem areas of the body. In normal massage treatments, the massage therapist will use compression techniques to relieve the areas of pain. Cupping therapy is different in that it operates by decompressing via the cups. The pulling action from the cup decompresses the soft tissues and muscles– all of this works to increase blood flow and accelerate the natural healing process of the body. With the immediate increase in circulation, cupping massage therapy is a faster pain relief method than regular massage care.
The plethora of benefits from suction cup therapy almost seem too good to be true. If the quick pain relief is not enough to sell you, how about these other benefits? The improvement in circulation also helps to detox your body, motivate cell repair, reduce tension, and increase mobility and range of motion. Further excellent benefits are the release of scar tissue, improvement of healed scars, help in digestion, reduced feelings of anxiety and depression, and reduced blood pressure.
