Generally, cupping is combined with acupuncture during treatment, but it can also be used alone. Cupping involves placing warmed cups on specific acupuncture points to bring blood and energy to the surface. Cupping is used to relieve back and neck pains, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraines, arthritis and even cellulite. In treatment of cellulite and weight loss, cups are moved up and down on the local part of body. Even hands, wrists, legs, and ankles can be ‘cupped,’ thus applying the healing to specific organs that correlate with these points.
