For people who have seen videos of what cupping is like, some are off-put by the marks the cups leave on the back. However, the red spots from the cups are not bruises and can fade away much sooner. Bruises are marks that occur when blood vessels rupture under the skin. Cupping marks, on the other hand, are caused by the movement of otherwise stagnant blood and fluids being drawn by the suction. The vacuum the cups creates helps draw the fluids to areas where injury and inflammation may limit flow. Most patients find the treatment to be a relaxing and therapeutic experience, not unlike a massage, Cupping helps soothe the nervous system and can help you achieve deep relaxation and pain relief.
