Draw out toxins, relieve muscle tension
Another ancient technique used in Egypt, the Middle East and China, traditional sources used cupping to draw out toxins and relieve muscle tension.
With cupping, or "distraction", we want to consider 4 basic categories:
Disorders of the Lung.
Soft tissue, nerve injury & pain.
Colds & flus.
Fire cupping uses a suction created with a controlled flame. The cups are left on, or moved, from anywhere from a moment to 20 minutes and will generally create a round bruise.
