Fire Cupping

The most traditional form of cupping, fire cupping is a more technique based practice. Fire cupping comes from Traditional Chinese Medicine. A flame is used to suck the oxygen out of glass cups, which creates a suction when placed on the body. The flame does not touch the patient's body, the marks are a result of the blood being pulled to the surface of the skin, not from the heat touching the body. Generally fire cupping can be done stationary or as moving cupping. With moving cupping lotion is applied to the body, and the cups are slid along different muscle groups getting to a broader area, kind of like a traditional massage.
