Cupping therapy uses jar-like cups, which attach to your skin via suction.  The vacuum action of cupping rapidly facilitates the release of rigid soft tissues, stimulates the peripheral nervous system, loosens and lifts connective tissues, breaks up and drains stagnation. It also increases blood and lymph flow to skin, muscles, and connective tissues.

Cupping -What to Expect?
You usually feel a tight sensation in the area of the cup.  Cups are generally left in place for 5-20 minutes.  Cupping massage involves applying a lubricant to the skin prior to cupping and moving the cup while maintaining the suction.  Cupping is most often applied for pain relief, sore muscles, lung and chest congestion, asthmatic conditions, and respiratory infections.

Cupping is painless and most patients find the process relaxing. Cupping leaves signature red circles where the cups were placed. The marks are not bruises. In most cases, the marks will disappear within a few days, but be prepared for them to last up to 3 weeks.
