Cupping

Cupping therapy is an ancient Chinese form of alternative medicine where a local suction is applied to the skin.  Once the suction has occurred, the cups can be moved across the skin causing the very top muscle layer and connective tissue to be drawn up into the cup helping to increase blood flow in order to promote healing.  Cupping can help break up obstructions such as scar tissue and can create an avenue for toxins to be drawn out of the body.  It can be used to treat certain types of pain as well as respiratory conditions such as congestion and bronchitis. 

Cupping can cause some swelling and bruising on the skin. As the skin under a cup is drawn up, the blood vessels at the surface of the skin expand. This may result in small, circular bruises on the areas where the cups were applied. These bruises are usually painless, however, and disappear within a few days of treatment.
