Cupping massage is a more widely used form of cupping among massage therapists and other health care practitioners. Before applying the silicone cup, oil is administered to the skin to facilitate smooth movement and palpably discover the areas of tension and congestion.  Placing the cup on the affected area creates a vacuum, as the cups glide over the surface.
