Cupping therapy is an ancient Chinese therapy based on the belief that certain health problems can be caused by stagnant blood and poor energy flow through your body.
During a cupping treatment, a globe or hollow vessel with suction is applied to the surface of the skin. The suction between the cup and the skin causes the skin to lift somewhat from the muscles and draws impurities and cellular waste products in the muscles and connective tissue (fascia) towards the surface and expels them through the skin’s pores.
