Cupping is an ancient Chinese therapy in which a cup is applied to the skin and the pressure in the cup is reduced (either by heat or suction) in order to draw and hold skin and superficial muscles inside the cup.
A alternative medicine in which a local suction is created on the skin; this mobilizes blood flow in order to promote healing.
For the the following symptoms and conditions.
Cupping is much like the inverse of massage - rather than applying pressure to muscles, it uses gentle pressure to pull them upward. For most patients, this is a particularly relaxing and relieving sensation.
Once suctioned, the cups are generally left in place for about ten minutes while the patient relaxes.
