Cupping therapy. Woman having a cupping vessel applied to her shoulder during cupping therapy. This ancient alternative therapy increases blood circulation by applying small open vessels onto the skin and applying heat. As the vessels (usually glass jars) cools, a small vacuum is created and the skin is sucked into the vessel.
