Cupping is a therapy in which glass or plastic cups are applied to the skin along the meridians of the body, creating suction as a way of stimulating the flow of energy. Cupping pulls blood to a region to stimulate healing. It is effective at stretching tight fascia and muscles. Cupping helps the tissue develop new blood flow and causes anti-inflammatory chemicals in the body.
