Cupping is an ancient therapeutical technique whereby suction or a drawing action is created over an area of the body by using fire and specially prepared cups or jars. Cups are applied to the skin in order to draw and hold the skin, fascia and superficial muscles inside the cup. The way this is achieved is by applying an open flame to draw the oxygen out of the cup then the vacuum created within the cup will be placed over trigger points, to release tightness in the muscle and other surrounding structures.
