Cupping involves placing suction cups on the skin. The vacuum that is created increases the blood flow to the cupped area. Placing the cups on specific reflex points has a positive effect on the corresponding internal organs. A distinction is made between dry cupping, which does not draw blood, and wet cupping, in which a small incision is made before the cup is applied.
