Cupping therapy is a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) treatment that involves placing suction cups on the skin to stimulate specific points along the body. It is often used as a complementary therapy to acupuncture to help to alleviate a wide range of conditions. This TCM modality has been gaining popularity among high-performance athletes. Olympians such as Michael Phelps and Simone Biles, as well as professional athletes like LeBron James, have incorporated cupping into recovery routines to boost athletic performance.
Cupping helps to stimulate blood flow and relaxes tight muscle tissue. It also aids in the removal of toxins and waste products from the body. This ancient therapy is now being embraced by modern athletes as a way to improve performance and reduce the recovery time between workouts. But how does cupping therapy work and is it actually effective for athletic performance? Let's take a closer look.
