Cupping has been used for centuries as a healing modality and as an alternative to acupuncture.
There is a phrase "Where there is pain there is stagnation, where there is stagnation there is pain." Stagnation refers to blood not moving in the muscles, tissues and acupuncture channels. By cupping the area, it stimulates the flow of blood and fluids carrying nutrients and oxygen to the affected tissues. The suction pulls cellular waste to the surface (coloring the skin), thereby relieving the source of pain. Cupping increases blood circulation; reduces stagnation, helps the body relax stiff, sore muscles and detoxifies the body.
