Cupping is an ancient Chinese medical treatment, that has been making its way into the Western hemisphere in the more recent years. Cupping is very much what it sounds like: CUPS! Suction cups of different sizes are placed strategically on the body, and used to draw blood to the surface of the skin. Because of this, discoloration may be left behind once the treatment is over, which can last anywhere from 2 weeks, to just a few hours. This technique is said to improve circulation, which, in turn, allows for a quicker healing process while reducing pain and soreness.
