Cupping is a therapeutic practice that involves creating suction on the skin using a glass or plastic cup. Cupping can be applied stationary on dry skin or as sliding cups with an emollient that allows the cups to glide along the skin.
Cupping leaves temporary marks on the skin that can look like bruising. In cases of wet cupping, where lancets are used to puncture the skin along with cupping, the marks may be darker. The marks themselves typically do not hurt and will resolve within days of treatment.
Gua sha is a therapeutic technique in which the surface of the skin is stroked using a round-edged tool. This is typically performed along the neck and back, but can also be used on the arms, legs, and even the face
