Dry Cupping is performed by applying a plastic cup to the surface of the skin and using a pump the air is removed by suction. This method draws blood and fluid away from any inflamed area to the surface of the skin. Dry cupping can be performed at any time, on any day, and can be left for 10-15 minutes.
This therapy pulls blood to a region to stimulate healing. It is effective at stretching tight fascia and muscles. Cupping helps the tissue develop new blood flow and causes anti-inflammatory chemicals in the body. This is the process where the cups are placed on the body with suction however the blood is not removed from the skin.
