Cupping uses pressurized cups over body parts that are bruised, sore or aching. Heat or air creates the suction effect under the cup as it slightly lifts the skin from the affected muscle. The suction tends to attract blood to the area, increasing the circulation around the bruise and promoting healing. Our American Olympic athletes swear by the benefits of cupping. They feel better, return to routine activity much faster, plus they claim the treatment protects them from further injury.
Just one drawback, though fleeting, comes as an aftermath to cupping. Where the cups caused suction, there will appear visible purple dots on the skin, caused by the tiny capillaries rupturing and spilling small amounts of blood. The spots are tell-tale signs of healing and indicates that recovery is not far off. Blood is just re-absorbed into the circulation, and shortly after, pain is no longer felt even if pressure is applied to the affected areas. Thankfully, you can just cover those spots as you heal, with your regular wear.
