A therapeutic cupping treatment involves placing cups on the skin, creating a vacuum so the tissue is drawn up into the cup. The practice increases blood flow, loosens the fascia or connective tissue, and is thought to stimulate healing. It is similar to the way deep tissue massage can be used to break up scar tissue and reduce pain.

Cupping may cause temporary bruising and soreness, depending upon the degree of suction created by the vacuum and the level of internal stagnation. This would be a favorable outcome, suggesting the treatment has successfully removed toxins and stagnation.
