Cupping therapy is a traditional Chinese and Middle Eastern practice that people use to treat a variety of conditions. Cupping therapy is a practice that involves briefly attaching rounded inverted cups to certain parts of the body using a vacuum effect.
As the air inside the cup cools, it creates a vacuum. This causes your skin to rise and redden as your blood vessels expand. The cup is generally left in place for up to 5 minutes.
People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being
