​Cupping is used to release tight muscles and to detoxify the body of toxins and pathogens.The suction caused by cupping improves blood circulation to the area and releases tight muscles to relieve pain. Cupping creates suction either by using a flame to burn the oxygen from the cup and then applying the cup to the patient or by placing the cup on the patient first and then removing the air through a valve. In general, any bruises that result clear up between 5 to 10 days.
