The technique involves placing glass or plastic cups on specific areas of the body and creating a vacuum. The suction has the effect of breaking up stagnation and enhancing the circulation of lymph and blood, relieving sore and tight muscles, clearing toxins, and soothing the nervous system.
Cupping can also be beneficial in the treatment of several other conditions including the common cold, allergies, migraines, stress, anxiety, insomnia, high blood pressure, digestive disorders, and even cellulite.
Sliding cups is another method of cupping where oil is applied to the skin allowing the cups to glide along the body, creating a deep tissue suction massage. Cupping may leave tell-tale marks on the body resembling bruising; however, these marks are not painful and should resolve within a few days.
