Cupping therapy is designed to stimulate the flow of blood and Qi within the superficial layers of the body. It is used for sore muscles, tension, neck pain and even the common cold. In this modality, small glass cups are placed over specific areas on the body. A vacuum is created under each cup using suction. The cups may be moved over an affected area or left in place. Cupping is much like the inverse of massage – rather than applying pressure to muscles, it uses gentle pressure to pull them upward. For most patients, this is a particularly relaxing and pain-relieving sensation. Once suctioned, the cups are generally left in place for about 10 minutes while the patient relaxes. Sometimes, cupping is combined with acupuncture in one treatment, but it can also be used alone. See how cupping therapy can help you.
