Chinese cupping therapy is often used to relieve muscular pain and stiffness or stagnation in the body. Conditions where cupping can be useful include muscular aches and pain, headaches, chronic back pain and sciatica, detoxification support and assistance in calming the nervous system. Glass cups create a suction on the skin and layer of muscle tissue drawing blood to the surface and promoting circulation and increased movement of Qi throughout the body.

Cupping has been used in many cultures through-out history dating back to the Egyptians, Ancient Greece and Hippocrates.
