Cupping therapy, sometimes known as myofascial decompression, is a form of Eastern medicine that has gained popularity in recent years. Cupping therapy involves using cups placed on the skin to form an airtight seal. This seal lifts the skin from the underlying tissues to promote blood flow to the area. In Western medicine, cupping has been used as a complementary medicine to treat pain.
