Cupping has become popularized in the media due to the marks seen on several celebrities. Much like all of Chinese Medicine, it has been around for thousands of years and has played a role in many medical histories of different cultural origins. It has remained due to its ability to address several key ailments. Commonly it is used for pain management and respiratory disorders. Cupping is the placement of specially designed glass cups in an inverted position over certain areas of the body with the use of vacuum pressure. While this procedure does leave marks for several days, it can often provide immediate relief for many conditions and is a great and often under-utilized component of Eastern Medicine.
