Complementary and Traditional Chinese Medicine - Cupping
What is cupping?
Cupping involves the quick insertion and removal of a flame into a glass cup. This process removes oxygen from the cup and once the cup is applied to the skin it creates a vacuum. Cupping enables blood to be drawn to the outer muscle layers to release any tension and to help nourish the superficial muscle layer.
Cups may be lifted off and on, fixed in one location or glided over an area of the body, the method used depends on the individuals condition.
Cupping can leave red marks and depending on the muscle tension can be quite dark. These marks may remain for 1 day to 1 week.
Cupping is usually used as an adjunct therapy with acupuncture and not a stand alone treatment.
