In this treatment, Sheffield massage centre therapists use cups to create suction on the skin. Suction is either created by using fire or by using a rubber pump.
While using fire to create suction, a flammable substance is put in the cup and set on the fire. Once the fire is out, cups are placed on the skin. As the air inside the cup cools down it creates the suction which expands the blood vessels.
This improves the blood circulation in the damaged area and provides fresh blood supply. Some therapist uses rubber pump instead of fire for creating suction.
This therapy is not as soothing as other therapies are. But, without any doubt, definitely, cupping therapy is the best non-invasive, natural approach to deal with body diseases.
