Chinese cupping provides a deep tissue massage that is believed to help alleviate a number of physical ailments. The suction and negative pressure from the small glass or plastic cups can loosen muscles, encourage blood flow and calm the nervous system. In more recent years, it has even become a common form of therapy among athletes. Like acupuncture, cupping follows the lines of the meridians on your back, which helps to relax and align the body. Ahead, we did some research and rounded up some of the best cupping sets on the market. Two of our options come with biomagnetic “needles” that apply pressure on the acupoints.
