Cupping therapy is a common treatment in traditional Chinese medicine that involves placing cups on the skin to create suction through negative vacuum.
There are two ways cupping therapy can be implemented:
Dry Cupping: Cups are placed on the skin and suction is created by applying flame to the glass cup (also known as fire cupping).
Wet Cupping: Small incisions are made on the skin using a lancet needle. The cups are then applied to draw out the small amount of blood.
