Cupping is an ancient Chinese medical treatment that also shows up in many other cultures. Suction cups made of glass, silicone or plastic are placed on the skin in order to flush specific areas with circulation. This is recommended for respiratory conditions, tight and stiff muscles such as with individuals working corporate desk jobs or others experiencing stress and anxiety, and for athletes or recreational sports players in need of a boost to their recovery. The suction in cupping creates negative pressure which aids in draining lymph and in facilitating myofascial release.
