Cupping is an alternative medicine therapy, known to have been used in ancient cultures as early as 1550 BC. It uses inverse pressure to pull the tissues and increase circulation to the area. It has been known to reduce pain and inflammation, increase range of motion, and induce relaxation. Although not painful, cupping often leaves marks that look like bruises.
