Can Cupping Help Cellulite?
Cupping therapy is an ancient practice that involves pulling the skin's top layer into cups using suction. Although cupping isn't a go-to cellulite treatment, some limited research suggests it may temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite. The theory behind cupping is that it promotes the drainage of toxins and fluids while pulling lymphatic capillaries and blood to the surface to stimulate circulation. However, experts don't know if the results are long-lasting. If you are interested in trying cupping therapy, you should visit a qualified physical therapist with experience in the procedure. Make sure your skin is clean, and discuss your goals with your practitioner before starting.
