Cupping Therapy, the act of placing cups at certain points on a person’s skin is most often associated with Ancient Chinese Medicine, although it appears to have been practiced as far back as 1550 BC in Egypt. The Ebers Papyrus, considered the oldest known medical text in existence, describes the procedure very similar to the way it was performed in ancient China as well as other regions of the far east and middle east.

The interesting part of this is that so many cultures who, as far as we know, had no communication with one another for thousands of years all developed, and saw the medical value, in the practice of cupping.

Then, like today, cupping used to aid in the treatment relieve back and neck pains, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraines, rheumatism, as well as a host of other ailments.

Cupping, when performed by a knowledgeable and experienced practitioner can increase, or decrease (depending on the desired effect) the blood flow in areas of the body.

Those suffering from any of the illnesses listed above should consider trying cupping as a treatment
