Cupping acts as a suction or vacuum. The treatment, involving heated glass (or, more traditionally, bamboo jars) pulls metabolic waste and stagnant blood from deep muscle tissue upwards towards the superficial layer of skin. This vacuum effect causes fine blood vessels (capillaries) to expand and burst, causing the bruising. But rather than looking at the bruising as a trauma, from a TCM perspective the bruising is a good sign. It’s an indication that toxins embedded in stagnant blood (and other fluids) have risen to the skin’s surface. In the deep layers of tissue, blood flow becomes more like a free-flowing river, rather than a static swamp.
