It is a safe method when it is done correctly and there are no contradictions.
There are 2 types of cupping therapy. The traditional one with the use of fire, and the other with plastic cups. Both are effective, with good results but we need to choose what is needed and what will work best for each case. Cupping marks and spots are left locally which gradually cure in the following days.
