    Cupping refers to an ancient Chinese
    practice in which a cup is applied to the
    skin and the pressure in the cup is reduced
    (by using change in heat or by suctioning
    out air), so that the skin and superficial
    muscle layer is drawn into and held in the
    In some cases, the cup may be moved while
    the suction of skin is active, causing a
    regional pulling of the skin and muscle (the
    technique is called gliding cup).
    Cupping is mainly recommended for the
    treatment of pain, gastro-intestinal
    disorders, lung diseases (especially chronic
    cough and asthma), and paralysis, though it
    can be used for other disorders as well.
