CUPPING

Cupping is a treatment to reduce pain, tension and stiffness by using glass cups to increase circulation. Heat is used to create a suction onto the skin and the cups stay on the skin for 5 - 25 minutes. Dark circle marks may appear on the skin from the superficial capillaries breaking under the skin.  The dark circles look like a bruise, but are not the same as a bruise from a trauma.
