Cupping Therapy in Shanghai
At the selected time, you should make your way to the Chinese medicine centre located at 9 Joy Tower, ready to enjoy your cupping therapy session. But first, let us explain exactly what cupping is and what it's used for.
Cupping is a type of alternative therapy that originated in China. It involves placing cups on the skin to create suction. The suction increases blood circulation to the area where the cups are placed. The Chinese believe that this can relieve muscle tension, which can improve overall blood flow and promote cell repair.
This therapy shot to fame during the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, when many of the world's top athletes used this method to naturally enhance their sporting performance. Do you want to try it for yourself?
Your cupping therapy session will last between 15 and 20 minutes, after which you can continue enjoying the city of Shanghai, but you'll feel far more relaxed.
