Cupping is a technique used in Chinese medicine to stimulate acupoints or larger areas of the body. The cups create a suction on the skin. Cupping improves the blood and qi flow in the areas being treated by keeping the cups static or by moving them on the skin surface. Cupping is often used for: bronchial conditions, asthma and congestion, breaks up scar tissue, arthritis, gastrointestinal disorders, muscle pain and tightness (softens rigid soft tissue). Cupping helps stimulate the flow of blood, balances and realigns the flow of qi, breaks up obstructions, creates an avenue for toxins to be drawn out of the body.
