Cupping is an adjunct therapy to acupuncture and involves placing cups onto the skin using a vacuum to create suction.

This pulls blood supply to the skin which increases blood circulation to the area relieving muscle tension and promoting cell repair.  

Other benefits of cupping therapy include reducing inflammation within the body. For these reasons, cupping has become popular in recent years with many athletes using it  as an aid to their recovery from physical injury.
