Cupping Therapy

What is Cupping Therapy?

Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.

How Does Cupping Therapy Work?

In cupping therapy, an acupuncturist soaks a cotton ball in alcohol and lights it on fire inside a glass cup. Acupuncturist removes the flame, and quickly places the cup on a patient’s skin, creating a vacuum that draws up the skin tissue. When the skin seals the hot air in the vessel, the air inside begins to cool, causing the skin to contract. It’s this stretching and contraction of the skin that makes cupping effective, since it increases blood flow.
