Trained practitioners administer cupping therapy through the careful placement of heated cups on specific points of the body to ease pain, stimulate blood flow and eliminate toxins as part of a treatment plan that helps relieve a diverse range of conditions:
- Allergies and asthma
- Blood disorders
- Fertility problems
- Skin problems
- High blood pressure
Cupping Therapy Procedure
The use of cups on affected areas creates a localized pressure that acts as a vacuum to draw blood to the surface and facilitate healing. Experienced practitioners tailor treatments to achieve both therapeutic and stress relieving effects to harmonize the energy pathways of the body.
Mainstream Medicine in China
According to Eastern healing philosophy, cupping therapy induces the balanced flow of “Qi” energy through the body’s organs and tissues that triggers the natural release of harmful toxins. Safe and effective, cupping therapy is considered a mainstream form of medicine in China and practiced at most hospitals with great success. A recent review of several scientific studies has shown cupping therapy to be effective for a variety of conditions from acne to facial paralysis and especially effective when combined with acupuncture treatments.
