1. Relieves pain
One of the most popular uses for cupping is to relieve joint and muscle pain, especially in the case of lower back pain. Injuries can occur deep within the muscle, causing internal bleeding and bruising, which can lead to a collection of stagnated and old blood in the affected area.
Cupping these areas will help to get the blood circulating once again by bringing the old blood to the surface of the skin thereby allowing the circulation of oxygenated blood to the area and relieving the pain.
