Cupping

A therapeutic cupping treatment involves warming and placing cups, usually made of glass, on the skin. While heating the air within the cup, creating a vacuum, and when applied to the skin, the tissue is drawn up into the cup, by placing the cup over an acupuncture point along an energy meridian. The sliding cups technique performed on large muscle groups of the back to treat pain and muscle spasms. With air cupping, an alternative to fire cupping, a handheld suction pump is used to remove air from the cups, creating the vacuum without heat.

Key Takeaways:

  • A therapeutic cupping treatment involves warming and placing cups, usually made of glass, on the skin.
