Cups are applied to the body with the use of suction which pulls stagnation, heat or cold out of the body. It can leave marks that are red, purple or black and it can take several days for the marks to dissipate. There are various types of cups, from glass to plastic to silicone. Glass cups are heated to create suction. Plastic cups use a pump to suck out the air and pull the skin upward. Silicone cups are typically applied then moved across larger areas of the body to loosen fascia.
