The treatment performed by applying only cupping without any bleeding process is called cupping therapy.
Cupping Therapy is often preferred in cases of muscle spasm. High levels of lactic acid accumulate in overused and tired muscles or muscles in spasm and cause fatigue. With cupping therapy, blood circulation is increased in the spasmed area and lactic acid is removed from that area and excreted from the body through urine.
