Cupping therapy is an ancient Chinese form of alternative medicine. A local suction is created on the intended skin, believed to mobilize blood flow to promote healing. Suction is formed by heat or other mechanical devices to draw the skin upwards by creating a vacuum in a cup over the target area of the skin. The cup stays in place for five to fifteen minutes. It is believed by some to help treat pain, deep scar tissues in the muscles and connective tissue, muscle knots, and swelling.
