Cupping therapy uses glass cups and a flame to suck out the oxygen inside the cup. A vacuum is created and when the cup is placed on the skin, it draws the skin upwards into the cup. This mechanism opens the skin’s pores and creates an outlet for toxins to be drawn out of the body. There are different types of cupping: stationary, moving, flashing and bleeding. Each type is used for different ailments. After a cupping session, circular bruises may appear and will disappear within a few days of treatment.
