The characteristic of kinetic cupping is explained from treatment principles, manipulation and clinical application. The kinetic cupping is a new particular therapy that combines traditional cupping and kinetic therapy. With cups on the patient, limb action like flexion-extension, adduction-abduction and rotation is made to reinforce clinical effects, which has simple and safe manipulation, obvious efficacy and is well accepted by patient. It has more obvious advantage for pain that was caused by large-area soft tissue injury and discomfort where acupuncture is not appropriate.
