Hands Of Hope Physical Therapy
It’s a form of physical therapy that uses small cups, usually made of glass or plastic, to give your skin and underlying tissue a gentle lift. The cups are placed on your skin using suction, which creates a vacuum that pulls your skin and tissue upward into the cup.
Cupping uses negative pressure (suction) instead of positive pressure, it is the opposite of massage, where pressure is applied to the skin.
Fun fact about cupping therapy: it has been used for centuries in traditional medicine practices, it has a long history and has been passed down for generations, and it is still widely used today for its benefits in various conditions. That’s why we chose to add it to our fascinating collection of technologies!
