What is it?
Looks like a science experiment, but it’s a darn good healing method. How’s it done? A lit match is placed inside a plastic, rubber, or glass cup to create a vacuum; this is then quickly shifted to the surface of the skin where it’s left for up to 20 minutes. The suction pulls skin from the body (hence those red spots that linger afterward), to promote blood flow and prevent build up of lactic acid in your muscles – that’s why athletes love it, FYI.
