Cupping Therapy in Colchester
Suction Cup Therapy in Colchester
There are two types of cupping therapies, with a dry and a wet method which practitioners will use. Dry cupping uses a flame to heat the inside of the suction cup and then the cup is applied to the skin. As this cup cools a vacuum effect is created as the skin is raised up into the cup.
The raising of the skin then helps to elevate the tissue and separates out different layers of skin, muscle and fascia to reduce tension and create space for new blood flow. Dry cupping can also be applied with a pump instead of a flame. This allows the cups to be moved around with the use of lotion to reduce tension across the whole muscle.
Wet cupping is a similar procedure, however before the cups are applied to the skin, small cuts are made to the skin and suction cup is then put onto the skin. This will create a vacuum effect where blood is extracted from the skin. This method of cupping is great for increasing circulation in patients which have witnessed reduced circulation from an injury or condition.
