Cupping is an ancient Chinese Method of causing local congestion.  A partial vacuum is created in cups placed on the skin either by means of heat or suction.  This draws up the underlying tissues.  When the cup is left in place on the skin for a few minutes, blood stasis is formed and localized healing takes place.
