How does cupping work?

Experts are still searching for how cupping relieves pain and disease symptoms. There isn’t a lot of study on the therapy.
Suction from cupping pulls fluid into the treated area. This suction force increases and breaks open small blood vessels under the skin. Your body treats the cupping area like an injury. It transfers more blood to the site to stimulate the natural healing process. Some people theorize that cupping opens the pores and releases toxins.
