Cupping is a therapy in which bamboo, glass, or plastic cups are attached to the skin surface to cause local suction through negative pressure. The cupping method has the function of warming and promoting the free flow of qi and blood, diminishing swelling, and reducing pain. Cupping is often used for back pain, muscular tightness, and certain lung conditions such as cough.
