Cupping uses cups made of glass or plastic to gently pull the muscle and tendons. The cups are static, remaining in one area, or slid over a thin layer of oil on the skin. Most people find cupping to be warm and soothing.
This action is subtly massaging and stimulating to the area being treated, alleviating surface tension to bring pain relief on the surface of the body. And, this action contacts the lining of the lungs to allow for deeper breathing, helping in asthma, the common cold, emphysema, and COPD.
