Cupping Therapy Can Enhance Fitness Performance

How Cupping Therapy Can Enhance Fitness Performance and Recovery

Do you participate in sports competitively or recreationally?

Are you seeking an additional edge or increased performance?

Are you looking to achieve your next PR?

Would you like to accelerate your post-workout recovery time?

Do you enjoy exercise but find yourself restricted due to pain?

Or are you aiming to prevent injuries from occurring?

If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, you might find cupping therapy beneficial.

Cupping therapy works by placing specialized cups to create suction on the surface of the skin.

How does cupping therapy enhance fitness performance and recovery?

Simply put, it improves circulation to the areas where cups are applied.

Increased circulation accomplishes two things:

  1. Supplies oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the areas of cupping.

    This aids in tissue repair and recovery after intense training or an injury, reducing pain in the process. It can also increase mobility in the muscles and joints for optimal training and injury prevention.
  2. Removes metabolic waste and coagulation.

    Injuries and trauma can cause deep bruising, and sometimes, our bodies struggle to remove the coagulation. Cupping can support this process and speed up recovery. Intense workouts undoubtedly produce metabolic by-products (ever get Delayed-onset muscle soreness?), and inflammation also generates waste materials. Cupping therapy can aid in the removal process, reducing recovery time.

Moreover, it simply feels amazing. You’ll be relaxed during and after the cupping therapy.

Cupping therapy is beneficial for injuries, recovery, maintenance, and prevention.

If that’s your goal, you’ll want to try it and experience the benefits for yourself.
