Cupping treatment is a type of alternative medicine in which a therapist suctions your skin using specific cups for a few minutes. It’s used for a variety of reasons, including pain relief, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation, and well-being, as well as as a deep-tissue massage.

As an auxiliary treatment in conjunction with acupuncture, the combination of the two treatments will make the overall treatment effect better.
