Therapists at Everest Medical offer Cupping. Cupping involves creating suction on the skin using a glass, ceramic, bamboo, or plastic cup. Negative pressure is created in the cup either by applying a flame to the cup to remove oxygen before placing it on the skin or by attaching a suction device to the cup after it is placed on the skin.
Cupping is designed to help the body reduce inflammation by using suction. Cupping does not hurt but it may leave a temporary mark.
