Fire cupping is a healing technique used in Traditional Chinese medicine where a vacuum is created within a glass or bamboo cup and placed along specific acupuncture points or meridians on the body to increase the flow of qi and blood within the body.


According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, pain is caused when there is a stagnation of qi and blood. Fire cupping can be used to help move qi and blood in the meridians and to break up stagnation. When qi becomes stagnate there is pain and sickness. When Qi flows health can be restored.
