Cupping Therapy is a form of treatment that use suction on the skin, and draw, and stimulate the blood flow. Over time, cupping can help move the old blood, and bring out the fresh oxygenated blood back in. Depending on different treatment, you can have stationed treatment or moving treatment.

There are different types of cupping available in the market. Some may think this type is better than the others. Cupping started with the fire cupping, they are made of glass, and use fire, which helps to draw out the blood. However, this technique can take a long time to master, and it is expensive to get licensed. This is where glass cupping with bulbs are created. You simply have to press the bulb, and it will create somewhat a suction. Then there are also plastic Cuppings with pumps. Creates easy suction, and plastic are very easy to clean. Looks professional, and can be close to the traditional cupping therapy. However, not everyone can afford all these, and it is not the easiest to use, and manipulate.
