Where - Cupping tells us exactly where the problem resides. Under the treatment cups, the some of the skin will colour and some won’t despite the same amount of suction used. Even under one single cup, part of the skin may colour while the rest does not.
What - Cupping tells us what type of problem we are dealing with. Problems relating to toxin build up or muscle spasm causes the skin under the cup to colour. Issues involving the nerve or bone will not colour.
Severity – Cupping tells us the severity of the problem. Colouring of pink or red means the blockage is light or moderate and will take a day or two for the colour to go away. More severe stagnation or blockage will cause the skin to colour a deep scarlet, purple, or even black. This type of colouring will take seven to ten days to disperse.
