How Cupping Can Help Depression September 7, 2020

How Cupping Can Help Depression , Nyack, New York

Cupping therapy has its roots in ancient Eastern healing traditions that relieve various physical ailments. Holistic health practitioners also use this therapy to treat conditions, such as anxiety and depression. Here’s what you should know.

What Happens During the Cupping Process?

During dry cupping sessions, a trained professional therapist uses small glasses or ceramic cups and then applies them to your skin. As the cups cool, they create a suction effect, drawing blood to the surface of your skin while blood vessels expand.

The moving blood loosens connective tissue and the body responds by starting its natural healing processes. A session can last from 20 to 45 minutes, depending on the problems a patient presents.

What Are the Effects of Cupping on Depression?

Cupping patients find the process helps them feel deeply relaxed and achieve a pleasurable state of mind. Many experience relief from insomnia, a common symptom of depression.

Other benefits reported include relief from neck and back pain and less muscle soreness. Cupping therapists may recommend that you undergo at least six sessions for depression treatment.
