    In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) cupping is a method of applying acupressure by creating a vacuum on the patient’s skin. The therapy is used to dispel stagnation—stagnant blood and lymph, thereby improving qi flow—to treat respiratory diseases such as the common cold, pneumonia and bronchitis.

    This is essentially the same as sucking the air out of a bottle and letting it stick to your face/lip/tongue. Plus the improvement to blood flow would be pretty profound since there is less outside air pressure squeezing your skin down onto your blood vessels. Why so squeamish?
