Cupping Therapy

What is cupping?

Cupping is a form of traditional Chinese medicine that uses vacuum cups. These cups create a suction of the skin and helps remove toxins from the body. The vacuum is created by a suction pump that draws the air out of the cup. The intensity of the suction can range from light to heavy in order to relieve symptoms of the injury. Gliding the cups along the muscle and tissues will achieve optimal benefits of treatment.

The benefits of Cupping:

  • Release soft tissue by stretching underlying structures
  • Loosening of scars and adhesion to improve soft tissue
  • Promotes secretion of synovial fluid to reduce joint stiffness
  • Activating muscle spindle reflexes that relax contractile tissue

What is the difference between Dry and Wet Cupping?

The process described above is commonly known as dry cupping. Wet Cupping is a variation of the procedure where prior to the cup being placed, your skin is punctured and blood is drawn out in the suction process. There is also a variation where the dry cupping technique is done before puncturing your skin for wet cupping.
In both cases, cupping leaves round bruises on your skin which will clear up in around 10 days. Ointment may be applied to prevent infection, and you may receive multiple treatments depending on the condition being treated.
