Winning Cups & Cupping !

Cupping can win Cups ! Can it? Before that answer the following question.

What has 19 gold medals and a bunch of purple circles?

Everyone knows the name, it's Michael Phelps.

The world recently had gone crazy on the traditional chinese therapy. Many world class athletes have been seen doing this to boost their performance and recovery.

In traditional chinese cupping therapy, a therapist usually soaks a cotton ball in alcohol and lights it on fire inside a glass cup.

He or she removes the flame almost immidiately, and quickly places the cup on the patient’s skin, creating a vacuum that draws up the skin tissue, says Ha Truong, the owner of Hobart's most prominent massage therapy clinic Asian Hands Massage,

When the skin seals the hot air in the vessel, the air inside begins to cool, causing the skin to contract.

Advocates of cupping say it’s this stretching and contraction of the skin that makes cupping effective, since it increases blood flow.

The increased blood flow helps to recover the tissues and muscles inside the body. It is also found to be effective in boasting performance. No wonder why, we all see having those red and brown bruises for top athlates is now a trend - fashion statement !
