Action

The vacuum in the glasses is created by fire or a pump. The intensity varies depending on the treatment. The cupping glasses can be placed locally or pushed over the tissue with massage oil.

Effect

Cupping affects a variety of the body’s systems: skin, muscles, joints, digestion, internal organs through reflex zones, blood circulation and the nervous system. The skin is pulled up by the vacuum which enhances blood circulation, but which can lead to a bruise. The increased blood flow can last for several days. Adhesions and hardened tissues are loosened, waste materials are transported away and joints are enriched with fluid.
