Cupping is a technique, which has been recorded through the ancient world from Europe to China. When the inside air of the cup is warmed the air molecules expand. The cup is then applied to the skin and the air molecules cool. This cooling causes contraction, creating a void, or suction.
Cupping has been used to treat diseases of the lungs, gastrointestinal, paralysis, gynecological, pain as well as the common cold.
