Cupping is the application of a special cup to the skin to create a vacuum, gently pulling up the skin and connective tissue (fascia). It is a popular technique used to relieve pain, decrease muscle tension, promote circulation and much more.
Cupping is the inverse of deep tissue massage. Instead of pressure being applied to the muscles, it pulls them up and can affect tissue up to four inches deep from the external skin. This brings more oxygen and nutrients to the area reducing stagnation and pain.
A cupping session can leave temporary red or purple marks which last 2- 5 days. The darker the marks, the more blood stagnation there is in that area. Stagnation of blood is a result of tense, overworked, and fatigued muscles. With blood stagnation comes pain, and cupping is a very effective tool to reduce this stagnation.
