In cupping, a regionally limited vacuum is being produced on certain specific areas of the body. In this manner, internal organs and the meridian system are being influenced.

According to western medical interpretation, cellular metabolism will be reinforced and microcirculation is being optimized.

The vacuum suctions skin and adjacent structures upwards and therefore leads to stretching of the connective tissue (fascia) and the nerve endings to improve local circulation.

Furthermore, cupping has an immunestimulating and analgesic effect.
