Sports Cupping: A Beginner's Guide to Cupping Therapy for Athletes at Any Level
Have you ever hurt yourself while working out? Are you looking for a simple, inexpensive treatment method? Cupping could be the answer!
For thousands of years, cupping has been practiced in countries like China, Egypt, and Greece. By heating a glass cup and pressing it against pressure points on the body, therapists can encourage healing and promote good health. If you’re cupping at home, you will use the vacuum-cupping method, which replaces glass cups with plastic, rubber, or silicone, so you don’t need to involve fire. This therapy has become increasingly popular among athletes who frequently deal with sore muscles, stretched ligaments, and other health problems.
In Sports Cupping – A Beginner’s Guide to Cupping Therapy for Athletes at Any Level, you’ll learn about the history of cupping and all its benefits. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, all of life is sustained by energy known as “qi,” and the human body is no exception. Unfortunately, the flow of qi can stagnate because of injuries and cause symptoms like pain, dizziness, and decreased athletic performance. By applying cupping, you can activate healthy qi flow again, strengthen your immune system, and prevent diseases. In this book, you’ll learn how to treat injuries like:
- Hamstring strains
- Groin pulls
- Shin splints
- Lower back pain
- Knee injuries
- Tennis elbow
- Neck pain
We’ll also cover health conditions that can affect an athlete’s performance, like anxiety, depression, nausea, and insomnia. If you’re an active person or a professional athlete, you are at risk for injuries. This book provides you with detailed guides on where to cup and other treatment options like changes in your diet and herbal medicine. You’ll also learn about specific essential oils and herbs that can enhance your cupping experience, and complementary treatments that therapists often offer.
An injury shouldn’t stop you from achieving your athletic goals. Educate yourself on an ancient and effective treatment method, and become stronger than ever!
