Fire cupping is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a local suction is applied to the skin. A flame is lit inside a glass cup and then quickly removed, trapping the heat and creating a suction effect. Applying massage oil to the skin allows the cups to glide over specific muscle groups.
This treatment helps improve circulation and relieve muscle soreness and tension. It also stimulates the lymphatic system and promotes detoxification. Cupping is typically performed after acupuncture and is included in the treatment, if deemed appropriate for your condition.
