And although it has soared in popularity recently, cupping has been around for thousands of years and traces its roots to ancient Chinese and Egyptian medicine. Cupping was documented in one of the oldest medical textbooks in the world, Ebers Papyrus, which was written in 1550 BC. 

During a cupping session, round cups are placed directly on your skin. The cup is manually pumped to create a suction for several minutes.

How does it work?

It is believed that the suction created by the cup encourages blood flow—and this increased circulation may promote healing and reduce pain.
