Cupping therapy

Cupping therapy is the method of placing a cup over the skin and applying suction and negative pressure along the meridian channels and strives to dredge the channels pathway and stimulate free flow of Qi.

  • The theory behind cupping
    • Sedate nerve system – known as “provide relief through a pressure”
    • Encourage blood flow
    • Stimulate lymphatic drainage in the area being treat 
    • Promotes healing 
  • Cupping is combined with acupuncture in one treatment, but it can also be used alone. 

How the cupping work

  • Initially it pulls blood into an area of cupping. The tissues get saturated with fresh blood while the vacuum pulls stagnant blood out of the area. 
  • As new blood is forced into the tissues around the cups the body will begin to develop new blood vessel formation
  • As the new vessels form they will have the capability to feed the tissues with nutrient and oxygen, thus it induces healing process 
  • When the vacuum occurs it causes separation of the different layers of tissue which can cause micro trauma and minor inflammation.
  • Inflammation is the first line of healing. The body releases white blood cells, platelets, fibroblasts and other healing chemicals to promote healing.
