For the past few years, a significant change has been witnessed in the medical field. Most patients if allowed to choose now prefer alternative forms of treatment like massage, over the traditional medical methods that involve drugs and other invasive procedures. One of the advantages that alternative forms of treatment have over drugs is that there are minimal side effects if any. One of the alternative treating methods that have been widely appreciated is the cupping therapy.
This special type of massage therapy can be carried out in two ways; either stationary or moving (gliding) cup therapy. Fixed cupping therapy in is done by placing cups applied with oil at a fixed position for more than five minutes while moving cup therapy is where the cups are moved continuously on the body to sanction different parts.
