Cupping is often described as a ‘reverse massage’, as tissue is manipulated in an upwards motion rather than compressed. By encouraging a myofascial release, cupping helps relaxation of tissues, which reduces pain and increases range of motion.Depending on the focus of the treatment, the cups can be left in one place, or moved across meridian pathways and large muscle groups.

Due to the increased blood circulation to the area, cupping can cause petechiae (bruising) on the skin. The colour of the petechia (known as Sha in Chinese Medicine) may range from pale to red to dark purple, and is used diagnostically by the practitioner.

Cupping marks do not hurt afterwards, since they are superficial bruises, but as your skin heals, the blood and Qi circulation in the area stays elevated which further helps relax the tissue and decrease pain.
