Cupping is a traditional healing technique that promotes circulation by stimulating the skin with the application of suction cups.  Stimulating the skin surface and underlying musculature, cupping promotes the release of stagnant blood and fluid that has accumulated in an area of pain or dysfunction. By working as a form of myofascial decompression, cupping releases tension and encourages circulation of fresh oxygenated blood and nutrient exchange to the treatment site.

Cupping is also thought to increase system immunity, since the suction causes the release of a histamine-like substance in the skin which stimulates immune system response.
