Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist places special cups on the skin to create suction. This suction is believed to facilitate healing by increasing blood flow, reducing inflammation, and promoting relaxation. There are different types of cupping, including dry cupping (suction only) and wet cupping (which involves controlled medicinal bleeding). The cups, traditionally made from bamboo or ceramic, are now more commonly made from glass, silicone, or plastic. The therapy is typically applied to the back, neck, and shoulders but can be used on other parts of the body as well.

Cupping therapy is used for a variety of purposes, including pain relief, reducing muscle tension, and enhancing overall well-being. It is commonly employed to treat conditions such as back pain, migraines, and sports injuries. Despite its long history and growing popularity, particularly among athletes, the scientific evidence supporting the efficacy of cupping therapy remains mixed. Some studies suggest that it can be beneficial for certain ailments, while others indicate that the effects may be largely placebo. Nevertheless, many people report positive outcomes and an increased sense of relaxation and relief following treatment.
