What does cupping relieve?

I had heard a couple months ago some famous Hollywood types were starting to use this ancient healing process. Then I saw a small explanation on a tv show. Does anyone know the benefits of this procedure?

cupping in the east sence help unblock qui blockages, is promote cirulation, draw out clod, heat, damp and qui/blood stagnation ( toxins).

it is said that if you cup the medial bladder channel is like taking vit C.

hope that helps

My friends have done also but most haven't experienced the fainting part!

In the Muslim countries, cupping is believed to cure many diseases and even improve your memorization capacity if performed on the head (u have to shave though). There are some narations where the Prophet himself had performed cupping and has encouraged people to do so!

Hope this has helped you....

Oh yeah, it cost me about 15 US$
