Cups are applied to the body at various points determined by the practitioner and suction is created in order to relieve stagnation of the tissues and promote blood circulation by breaking up adhesions in the fascia, loosening the muscles and, redirecting the qi. Cupping should not hurt if applied correctly, and the marks it leaves behind are not bruises and do not hurt like bruises. The marks disappear in a couple of days, and the more you receive cupping/massage the less marks you will have because of loosening in the tissues. Some marks are darker than others at first, which are a good indication of the ‘tighter’ areas. Cupping is excellent for increasing ROM of joints, chronic pain conditions of the back and neck, and increasing flexibility.
