Cupping increases circulation, releases the muscles and restore fascia (connective tissue). It can also reduce inflammation, muscle and joint, act as a detox, improve mobility flexibility and athletic performance. It shortens recovery time visibly and effectively reduces cellulite and promotes contour and tone.
It has been claimed that five minutes of cupping equals thirty minutes of deep tissue massage. Cups may be left on a problem area from 2 to 15 minutes to promote blood flow. Bruises or marks that remain are an indication of healthy blood flow to the problem area which can also last for one to two weeks. If you notice one spot that is darker than the others, there is likely more stagnation and waste present in the area.
