Suction Power:

The cups used in cupping therapy can be applied in several ways. The most common method involves heating the cup to create a vacuum and then placing it on the skin. As the air inside the cup cools, it creates a suction effect, pulling the skin and underlying tissue upwards. This suction is thought to stimulate blood flow, release toxins, and alleviate muscle tension.

TCM Cupping Marks:

One distinctive aspect of cupping therapy is the circular marks it leaves on the skin. These marks are not bruises but rather a result of the release of stagnant blood, toxins, and metabolic waste from the body’s tissues. The marks typically fade within a few days to      a week.

Holistic Healing:

Cupping therapy is often used as a complementary treatment to address a variety of conditions, including pain, muscle stiffness, respiratory issues, and stress-related disorders. It’s believed to promote relaxation, improve circulation, and enhance the body’s natural healing abilities.

Variations in Technique:

There are different styles of cupping, including stationary cupping
(where cups are left in place for a period), moving cupping (where the cups are glided over the skin), and even wet cupping (which involves a controlled, minor skin puncture to release blood). The choice of technique depends on the individual’s specific needs and the practitioner’s expertise.
