Cupping has become a huge trend in 2016, but it’s also one of the most dangerous. The skin is drawn into the cup through suction and creates a vacuum; it is placed on the skin over the targeted area. Some people believe it helps treat pain and muscle knots, but there is poor evidence to support this. Cupping may cause burns, pain, bruising, and skin infections.
