Did You Know Cupping Can Help Muscle Tone?

Did you know that cupping helps to bring blood flow and oxygen to the muscles? 😲

As cupping brings blood flow and oxygen to the muscles – this also aids in muscle tone! So if you’re working on that summer body…you’ll still need to put the hard work in 😂

What is cupping? How does it tone your muscles?

Cupping therapy is often used as a relaxation technique to relieve muscle tightness and promote recovery after strenuous exercise.

By reducing muscle tension and promoting relaxation, cupping may indirectly contribute to muscle recovery and toning.


Benefits of cupping

Cupping therapy creates a vacuum effect on the skin, which draws blood to the surface and increases circulation in the area being treated. This increased blood flow brings oxygen and nutrients to the muscles, promoting healing and relaxation.

By creating suction, cupping helps release restrictions in the fascia, allowing the muscles to move more freely and reducing tension.

Cupping therapy from a licensed practitioner can help:

  • Loosen muscles
  • Encourage blood flow
  • Calm the nervous system,
  • Relieve back and neck pain
  • Stiff muscles
  • Muscle spasms
  • Anxiety
  • Fatigue
  • Migraines
  • Rheumatism
  • Cellulite
