Although cupping has increased in popularity in recent years, it has been used for hundreds of years, and it uses local suction to help reduce pain and inflammation. During a cupping session, a practitioner places circular cups directly on your skin that have either been previously heated or manually pumped to generate suction. The cups are then left on your skin for a few minutes to draw fluid into the intended region. Due to ruptured blood vessels near the skin's surface, this frequently results in discoloration, similar to a bruise.


Cupping has been used in Egypt, China, and the Middle East for thousands of years, but it is becoming more popular all over the world. There are two different types of cupping. The first is "dry cupping": suction is applied to the skin for several minutes; sometimes it is combined with massage, acupuncture, or other therapies. 


For many patients, this therapy is an important component of a comprehensive treatment plan and is frequently used to treat widespread ailments including back and neck discomfort, skin disorders such as acne and hives, migraines, arthritis, and even immune function.
