Cupping is an ancient Chinese therapy in which a cup is applied to the skin and the pressure in the cup is reduced (either by heat or suction) in order to draw and hold skin and superficial muscles inside the cup.
Cupping is applied to certain acupucnture points as well as to parts of the body that have been affected by pain. Cupping can affect the body up to four inches into the tissues, causing the tissues to release toxins, activiate the lymphatic system, clear colon blockages, activate and clear the veins, arteries and capillaries, activate the skin, clear streatch marks, and improve the appearance of varicous veins.
