Cupping is also a very old technique, used in many cultures, in which a special cup-like tool is applied to the skin and held in place by suction. This suction draws the body's superficial tissue into the cup, helping to draw stagnant fluids and waste products out of painful tissue so that they can be released and discarded. Cupping also brings fresh blood to the area and helps improve the overall circulation in the area of treatment. By releasing old, stagnant blood and wastes from the body, and revitalizing its tissues with fresh blood and nutrients, the area of injury is better able to heal.
