Cupping is another form of alternative medicine that has been around for thousands of years. It is the practice of using localized suction to improve blood flow to certain areas of the body. Suction is usually created by the application of heat, but electrical pumps can be used. This ancient technique is very useful for blood and skin disorders. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, cupping is used at acupressure points to decrease stagnation of blood and lymph, thereby allowing better flow of chi.
