Cupping

This technique originates in traditional Chinese medicine. The glass cups create a vacuum when applied to the skin. This stimulates the flow of blood and lymphatic fluid through the affected area to drain toxins, stimulate the nervous system, bring nutrients to damaged regions and loosen connective tissue and adhesions.

The cups can produce a reddened area on the skin due to the pressure. This is not damage but just a normal result of the drawing up of waste products for excretion. For those deeper areas and long term problems, cupping may be the solution you’re looking for.
