The primary side effects of cupping are bruising and skin irritation. Lasting approximately 7-10 days.

Cupping therapy is one of the oldest and most effective method of releasing the toxins from body tissue and organs. Throughout history, cupping techniques and styles have often resembled the geographic locations they were practiced in, using materials such as: animal horns, bamboo, ceramic, glass, metal, and plastic have all been used in this practice found in Ancient Egyptian, Chinese, Unani, Korean, Tibetan, and Latin American cultures, all of which have served the purpose of supporting the body’s ability to heal itself. It is a practice in which the therapist puts special cups on the skin to create suction. This causes the tissue beneath the cup to be drawn up and swell causing an increase in blood flow.  At the same time it also draws impurities and toxins away from the affected area. The cup may be left in place for several minutes and then removed, leaving behind a bright red or purple circular welt. The theory behind cupping is that it moves or stimulates the body's natural energy — also called qi.
