Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine dating back to 1000BC in China. Practitioners create a local suction on the skin by using heat or a pump. This gently draws the skin upwards by creating a vacuum in the cup over the targeted area of the body. Cupping is believed to increase or mobilize blood flow to encourage healing. Cupping is used to treat a broad range of health conditions, including respritory diseases and muskulosckeltal conditions.
