Cupping Therapy

What is Cupping Therapy?

Chinese cupping therapy has long since been an ancient part of traditional Chinese medicine and involves causing local congestion; it is performed by placing cups onto the skin by way of either heat or suction. Underlying tissue is then drawn under the cups when they are left on the skin for a few minutes and blood stasis will form and this is when healing takes place.

Cupping therapy was taken one-step further as a way in which to open up the meridian channels, the meridian channels are channels through which the life energy is able to flow freely throughout the body and through all organs and tissues. There are five meridians on the back and if these are properly open then energy is allowed to travel the full length of the body. It is thought that cupping is an excellent way in which to open these channels to ensure the energy can flow freely.

Conditions Which Can Benefit From Cupping

Conditions that can benefit from cupping include headache, back pain, joint and muscular pain, infertility, sexual disorders, rheumatic diseases,
hypertension, breast enhancement, bed wetting, common colds and flu,
insomnia, stroke, fever, constipation and diarrhea, chest pain, asthma and blood disorders.

Benefits of Cupping Therapy

Cupping is thought to be the best form of deep tissue massage available and is a method which is safe and reliable for most people. Recent research has found that cupping affects the body's tissue up to four inches deep; this causes the tissue to release toxins, clears blockages in the colon, activates the lymphatic system and helps to clear the veins and arteries.
