What are the red marks?
Cupping marks are from the effect of the negative pressure effect of the cups. They are not painful whatsoever, and no blood vessels are injured. When suction is applied, some people have what is called a histamine response, where a redness appears on the tissue. It is part of the natural healing response of the body. The coloration disappears within minutes to hours of receiving cupping. Some people have a stronger histamine response than others, depending of their skin type. If muscle tissue is injured, or not functioning correctly, or there is some kind of local congestion these marks may appear. This is due to the tiny capillaries bursting as the blood moves toward the surface of the body. These marks fade, and disappear in 1-3 days depending on the condition. In more severe cases, the marks may remain for 3-5 days.
Cupping can help to treat the following conditions:
abdominal pain, stomach ache, indigestion
headache and migraine
common cold and cough, asthma, cough, bronchitis
back and body pain
painful menstrual cycles
insect and poisonous snake bites
edema and swelling
limited range of motion
