Cupping therapy is not new. It dates back to ancient Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern cultures. One of the oldest medical textbooks in the world, the Ebers Papyrus, describes how the ancient Egyptians used cupping therapy in 1550 B.C.
Massage Cupping Therapy is used to soften tight muscles, loosen adhesions and separate layers of connective tissue to bring hydration and blood flow to the body and tissues.
