What is Cupping?

 Originally ancient Chinese used hollow horns of animals for the suction device. By briefly heating the air in an inverted horn cup, a vacuum is produced and the cup is quickly applied to the skin.  Resultant low pressure in the cup-to-body space causes a localized expansion of the tissue.  This then causes a profound vasodilatation reaction. Thus, cupping is used to increase blood flow to painful constricted areas, and to re-supply vital nutrients and oxygen.  Cups of various sizes and shapes are also fashioned from bamboo.  Some are made of glass or ceramics.
