What is Cupping?
Cupping is an ancient Chinese therapy in which a cup is applied to the skin and the pressure in the cup
is reduced (either by heat or suction) in order to draw and hold skin and superficial muscles inside the cup. Sometimes, while the
suction is active, the cup is moved, causing the skin and muscle to be pulled. This is called gliding cupping.
Cupping is based on
the meridian theory of the body. On one hand, cupping removes any stagnation in the body and opens the meridians so that qi can flow
freely. On the other, it also helps to rejuvenate certain meridians and organs that are not functioning at their best. From a scientific
standpoint, cupping is known to help activate the lymphatic system, promote blood circulation, and is good for deep tissue repair.
Cups are generally left in place for ten minutes although the time can range from five to fifteen minutes in each area of the body.
Benefits of Doing Cupping Therapy
Cupping can stimulate the body up to four inches into the tissues, causing the tissues to release
toxins, activate the lymphatic system, clear colon blockages, activate and clear the veins, arteries and capillaries, activate the
skin, clear stretch marks, and improve the appearance of varicose veins.
Cupping is also recommended for the treatment of pain, gastrointestinal
disorders, lung diseases (especially chronic cough and asthma), and paralysis, although it does have application for other problems.
About The Session
Cupping is applied to certain acupuncture points as well as to parts of the body that have been affected by
pain, where the pain is deeper than the tissues to be pulled. Cupping has greater emphasis on the acupuncture points in the back, due
to the ease with which it can be performed there. Most practitioners use the back shu points or bladder meridian and the dazhui. It
is frequently used after acupuncture, blood letting, or plum blossom treatment.
