Cupping therapy helps to loosen up muscles, encourage blood flow, and sedate the nervous system. The suction from the cups as well the negative pressure it provides are the key factors that make these things happen. Cupping therapy is mostly used to relieve neck and back pain, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraines, rheumatism, cellulite, and high blood pressure. There are also some contraindications for cupping as well.
Some of them are, cupping directly on veins, arteries, nerves, any skin lesion, body orifices, eyes, lymph nodes, or varicose veins. Cupping is also contraindicated on open wounds, bone fractures, and sites of deep vein thrombosis. Any individual suffering from cancer or any organ failure should also caution themselves regarding cupping therapy.
