Glass cups are attached to the skin by negative pressure creating a vacuum seal bringing old stagnant blood from the affected area to right underneath the skin. Cupping can leave temporary marks in the area of stagnation usually if pain is present, as healing takes place the marks disappear. After cupping the blood is able to join the circulation, so that fresh oxygen and nutrients reach the area of concern.  When there is an injury or pain, blood and Qi become sluggish and their free flow slowed down.
