Time to talk to you about how fire cupping is done. With this, we use the flame to create the suction. The flame doesn't come anywhere near you. Flame goes in the cup, and the cup goes down nice and fast. That creates the suction. As you will see, it's pulling in some tissue there, and as we get into the deeper layers, more and more will go into the cup. Getting deeper into the layers, moving up more of that stagnation, promoting better circulation so the healing properties can get to those tissues to heal.
It may feel a little pinchy or a little tight at first but as it get into the first initial layer, it relaxes quite nicely, and it's fairly relaxing. They do detoxify through the pores, so they might be a little itchy afterwards, and that's just the toxins sitting on top of the skin, irritating the skin. Once you wash that should ease.
