Cupping is the application of a cup to the body with vacuum suction. It feels similar to a massage, but since the suction lifts the fascia, it works like a reverse massage. It is used to treat muscle and tendon pain by increasing circulation and flushing the tissues. Most people love the experience and immediately notice less pain and muscle tension.
