Cupping

Using a glass cup and some fire to create a suction, cupping is used to pull toxins from the superficial muscles and promote circulation of blood, energy, and lymph. It is used for sore, tight muscles, detoxification, and acute respiratory illness. Because cupping pulls this stagnation to the body's surface, cupping can sometimes promote an area of discoloration that resembles a bruise and may last for a few days following treatment.
