Cupping therapy in Baton Rouge provided by Ozark Chiropractic Clinic is a treatment that can be used to reduce inflammation and pain, promote blood flow, and help with relaxation while providing some of the benefits of deep tissue massages.
What is Cupping?
Cupping therapy is a treatment that has been in use for over 1000 years. The Egyptians and Chinese, along with other ancient cultures, used it as part of their regular medicinal practices.
“Cups” are placed on your skin in the area to be treated and a vacuum is created within them. This vacuum causes the skin below the cup to rise into the cup, and it reddens as the blood vessels expand. This can increase hydration to the treatment area and help to remove adhesions, generally improving the health of the area and increasing your healing ability without the use of medication.
The cup is left in place for several minutes before being removed or relocated, depending on the type of treatment you are being given.
A single cup may be used, but it is more common for several cups to be used simultaneously.
What can Cupping Therapy in Baton Rouge treat?
In addition to the above-mentioned conditions, cupping has also been used to treat conditions as diverse as acne, arthritis, high blood pressure, anxiety, depression, and migraines.
The increased blood flow to the cupped area can help with the natural healing processes of the body which will decrease inflammation and boost the immune system. This can also improve the health of the skin in the area of treatment as the increased blood flow has a beneficial effect at all levels of the body.
In the same way that a massage works, cupping can also promote relaxation and break up scar tissue (even within the muscles) which in turn reduce pain and increases mobility.
Who uses Cupping Therapy in Baton Rouge?
In recent years, cupping therapy has been championed by celebrities, but it isn’t just the latest trend – as you can see, it has been in use for a very long time. Professional athletes now use cupping to help to recover from injury, reduce muscle pain, and to generally prepare themselves physically and mentally for their next big challenge.
