numerous benefits. Some of these include breaking up scar tissues and reducing pain in
the shoulders, back, and neck areas.

Furthermore, cupping may cause temporary soreness and bruises. However, these are not
harmful. TCM practitioners actually view them as favourable outcomes. In fact, soreness
and bruises are indications that blockages and toxins in the body are removed successfully.
