What to Expect at your Treatment
Cupping uses specialized glass or silicone cups shaped like a small round jar. In strategic areas of the body, the cups are placed to suction to the skin using mechanical devices or flammable liquids that are lit to allow heat to naturally remove the air from the cup. The suction from the cups improve flow by allowing the fluids of the body to move more freely. Cupping can result in bruising, soreness, and other mild side effects.
