What is Cupping Therapy?
Cupping is an ancient Chinese method of causing local
congestion. A partial vacuum is created in cups placed
on the skin either by means of heat or suction. This
draws up the underlying tissues. When the cup is left in
place on the skin for a few minutes, blood stasis is
formed and localized healing takes place.
Cupping therapy has been further developed as a means
to open the 'Meridians' of the body. Meridians are the
conduits in the body through which energy flows to every
part of the body and through every organ and tissue.
There are five meridians on the back that, when opened,
allow invigorating energy to travel the whole length of
the body. It has been found that cupping is probably the
best way of opening those meridians.
Cupping has also been found to affect the body up to
four inches into the tissues, causing tissues to release
toxins, activate the lymphatic system, clear colon
blockages, help activate and clear the veins, arteries
and capillaries, activate the skin, clear stretch marks
and improve varicose veins. Cupping is the best deep
tissue massage available. Cupping, the technique, is
very useful and very safe and can be easily learned and
incorporated into your family health practices.
