The application of suckers is an ancient medical treatment whose origin in traditional Chinese medicine dates back to 300 or 400 BC. The Egyptian and Middle Eastern cultures also have ancient records about this practice.Currently, the application of suckers is still used regularly in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM).

These are glass cups of different sizes that are attached to the body with a suction method that promotes blood circulation producing different healing effects. The treatment improves blood circulation, so it increases the speed of healing, reduces the pain and relieves muscle discomfort by accelerating the body’s natural healing process.
