Cupping is a non invasive procedure that can relieve muscle pain and tension. It involves using cups which can be made of glass, bamboo, or silicone.
Glass or plastic cups are commonly used and placed on tight or painful muscles to release tension and induce natural pain relief.
The suction that is created with the cups help stimulate blood flow and improve healing.
What is the difference between glass and plastic cups?
Glass cups may allow more blood flow and release tension than plastic cups. Also glass cups are much easier on the skin while the suction is stronger which is the key for pain relief while improving mobility and range of motion.
Glass cups may be better at reducing inflammation by stimulating the release of endorphins and other natural hormones that help to reduce the body’s response to inflammation.
In additional glass cups may help reduce recovery times better than plastic cups. As a result, it can help speed up the healing process and get the patient back to doing normal activities in less time.
