Cupping Massage at the Vermont Salt Cave Spa
Cupping therapy is an ancient form of therapy in which a local suction is created on the skin. It dates back to ancient Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern cultures. One of the oldest medical textbooks in the world, theEbers Papyrus, describes how the ancient Egyptians were using cupping therapy in 1,550 B.C. Practitioners believe cupping therapy mobilizes blood flow in order to promote healing. The cups can be made of a variety of natural materials such as glass, bamboo and earthenware.
