Cupping

   Cupping is an ancient Chinese method of causing local congestion. A partial vacuum is created in cups placed on the skin either by means of heat or suction. This draws up the underlying tissues. When the cup is left in place on the skin for a few minutes, blood stasis is formed and localized healing takes place. The red marks are not permanent and will fade and eventually disappear in about a week. Cause by an ancient Chinese technique to remove “wind” that is believed to cause the aches in your body.
