There are massages in which it is used all kind of utensils or tools to be performed with success. One of the most interesting massages is that in which it is used cups, more known as cupping. It is about a type of massage that comes from the antiquity, and it is based on its therapeutic capacities in the theory of the body fluids.
According to this theory, in the body flow substances and energies that keep alive and healthy: blood, lymph, oxygen… which go from the brain to the feet, passing through the elbows, knees, heart, in short, through the whole organism. The emptiness that the cupping produces on the skin with using the cups regulates and channels this essential flow.

The idea is that all the oxygen consumes inside the crystal cups. With that aim in some massage centers it is introduced a lighted incense stick between the cup and the skin to consume it. So the cup adheres to the skin. The effect of the cup on the skin and the muscle is to create a hyperaemia, which moves the body fluids and spreads them around the whole body. The cupping is a massage technique that makes the most of the emptiness to strengthen the movement of the body fluids.
Another important application of the cups is when they are placed on the back, with the aim of favouring the working of the lungs.
