Cupping

Cupping involves the application of glass cups, which adhere to the body by the use of heat. You do not feel the heat, but you will feel the cup on the skin. The cups are used over certain acupuncture points and/or over areas of pain. The idea is that stagnation by lack of circulation in the muscles and body tissues will lead to pain and other illnesses. Cupping improves the circulation in these areas.
