Cupping involves placing warm glass cups on specific areas of the body. The warm air inside the cup creates a vacuum that increases blood and lymph flow which then relaxes the muscles, loosens fascial tissue, stimulates healing and sedates the nervous system, inducing relaxation. It works similarly to the way deep tissue massage helps to reduce pain and break up scar tissue.
