The most common misunderstandings concerning cupping is the misinterpretations of the marks that sometimes result. These marks are not bruises. There is no compression or impact trauma in correctly performed cupping. As the skin under the cup is drawn up, the blood vessels at the surface of the skin expand. The degree of colouring is used as a diagnostic tool by acupuncturists. The marks will disappear within 3-10 days after treatment.
