The ancient Chinese art of cupping therapy is a form of alternative medicine believed to have originated over 4,000 years ago. Cupping can treat various conditions and symptoms, including pain, inflammation, muscle spasms, fatigue, and respiratory issues.
In cupping therapy, glass or plastic cups are placed on the skin. The skin is then sucked into the cup using a vacuum pump or creating negative pressure with heat from a flame. This creates a suction effect that stimulates blood flow and encourages healing.
