How long should I leave cups on "parked'?Updated a year ago

As a rule of thumb, don't leave the cups parked on the body for longer than five minutes. Cups parked on the body can increase damage over time. They can result in water blisters which are just fluid filled blisters that are a result of the body not liking the suction either being on for too much time or the pressure was too strong.

Sometimes if the cups are left on for a longer amount of time this may start to feel like a rug burn or maybe even start to feel like an itching sensation because histamine is being released throughout the body. If that happens simply remove the cup and place it on a different area. That area again will be cupped no longer than five minutes.
