Cupping is the modern term for an ancient medical treatment popular in Asian and Arab cultures. Once suction is created, the cups are placed on the skin (usually the back) and moved across the body. This creates a negative energy flow, which can counteract the current state of stagnation.
In my healing practice, I use glass cups of all different sizes. As small as 1 in. diameter to 3.5 in. The larger the cup, the more surface area it covers, best for the back. Smaller cups go to smaller places like the elbows, very back of the neck, ankles and feet. Cupping alone, is an amazing treatment on its own. It stimulates lymphatic drainage, relaxes muscles, and releases toxins. In addition, cupping is said to energize the physical organs, and releases unresolved emotions stuck in the body.
