Cupping: Suctioning Out Pain
Learn a bit about what cupping does for the body—and where it might've come from—with Groupon's brief introduction.
Cupping is an ancient holistic-healing technique whose benefits are perhaps more immediate and apparent than most. During a session, therapists apply cups directly to the patient’s skin to create a vacuum. Moving the cups lifts the muscles and creates light suction, causing a sensation similar to a massage.
The theory behind skin-suctioning therapy dates back to prehistoric times. Though the country of its origin is unknown—some sources attribute it to China, while others credit Babylon—its use was widely recorded in the ancient world. In the earliest examples of the treatment, hollowed-out animal horns were used, before practitioners eventually began employing the cups still in use today.
