Cupping can cause blood to be drawn to the surface of the skin, which can cause red marks, swelling, and bruising. These are signs of your blood stagnate status. When your body is toxins-free, it will not leave marks. The more toxins your body has, the darker the bruising marks will be.

After treatments, you will feel much painless, relaxed and a little bit tired. We recommend you wear warm clothes, take shower next day, maintain fluid intake, and have warm and cooked food.
