What is Cupping Therapy?

Cupping therapy is a new trend to western society but it has been around for centuries, being used in China for as long as 3000 years. The Chinese have been using cupping practices as an alternative therapeutic method as they have been able to recognise the health benefits associated with the method. Cupping and acupuncture have less risks and side effects like pharmaceutical drugs and surgery do.

How cupping works is by expanding the capillaries and increasing the amount of fluids entering and leaving tissues. On top of this, cupping is also a quite soothing procedure which helps provoke relaxation and calmness in individuals, lowering stress and improving overall well-being.

 

Dry Cupping Therapy(In our shop)

 

During a dry cupping session, the glass cup or vessel is set on fire using a flammable substance such as alcohol or herbs. The fire begins to go out, and the alternative medicine practitioner places the glass therapy cup on the surface of the patient’s skin.

 

As the therapy cup cools, it creates a vacuum or suction. The skin will rise into the glass cup and will begin to redden. Typically, these glass or silicone cups are set in place for up to three minutes at a time. But some treatments require longer times and can last up to twenty minutes.

 

Dry cupping produces a low amount of pressure. The cups are better suited for use on the softer tissue so that a secure and tight seal is allowed against the skin. The skin may also be lubricated so that the cups can be moved around from one area to a larger area.
