What Is Cupping Therapy?

Cupping therapy is a traditional Chinese and Middle Eastern practice that is described as one of the oldest treatment interventions and can be used to treat a variety of issues and conditions.

Cupping therapy is used to stimulate acupuncture points in larger areas of the body. This treatment can be used in conjunction with acupuncture or as a treatment method on its own.

In ancient times, cupping therapy was used to treat fever and lung conditions, including pneumonia and bronchitis.

These days, cupping therapy is used to relieve pain, help with musculoskeletal injuries and reduce inflammation, promote mobility, improve scarring, and decrease toxins.

Cupping is an effective treatment option that overall helps promote the body’s natural self-healing system.

 

What to Expect From Cupping Therapy

Cupping therapy will begin with your therapist warming up the cups before applying them to your skin. The cups can also be manually pumped to create suction.

The special cup sucks onto your skin to create a vacuum. This causes blood vessels to expand and redden. The cups are left on the skin for a certain amount of time, depending on the individual and the treatment area.

Cupping therapy will leave bruises on the skin. This is due to the blood vessels under the skin, called capillaries, bursting from the therapy.

You should expect to have red and purple round bruising marks from your cupping therapy that will fade in a week or two, and although they look like bruising, they are not like normal bruises as they have not happened from damage to muscle fibres.

 

How Does Cupping Therapy Work?

Cupping therapy works due to the underlying tissues that create expansions of the soft tissue structures and expand blood vessels. This produces a vasodilation effect, which is a medical term for when blood vessels widen and therefore allow more blood to flow through them, overall lowering blood pressure.

The vasodilation will happen in the area that is being worked on, which promotes draining and the flushing of toxins. This type of therapy does not only provide the body with many physical benefits, but it also has a therapeutic effect.

Cupping therapy can help encourage blood flow overall. Increased blood circulation may help promote healing and reduce pain in patients, and maybe some of the patients that we treat at Concordia Clinic have reported feeling amazing after their cupping therapy treatment with us.

The Benefits of Cupping Therapy

The benefits of cupping therapy are endless, with many different health and wellness reasons for people to choose this therapy treatment. It is used to treat lots of different pain problems, the main ones being lower back pain, neck pain, and headaches.

Other benefits of cupping therapy include:

  • Enhances blood supply
  • Drains fluid
  • Targets tissues
  • Stretches connective tissues
  • Promotes healing
  • Promotes lymphatic flow
  • Improves circulation
  • Can be used to treat headaches and migraines
  • Muscular aches and pains
  • Reduces stress
  • Reduces anxiety
  • Can help with pain that comes from arthritis
  • Can help with insomnia
  • Reducing the appearance of cellulite
  • Aches and pains from sciatica
  • Helps boost the immune system

 

Is Cupping Therapy Painful?

Cupping therapy should not be painful; however, the bruising that it can leave behind on the skin and how that feels can vary from person to person. The bruises from cupping therapy can cause swelling and soreness, so this is something to be aware of, and the spots that are left behind do heal and fade soon enough.

If you have a skin condition of any kind, it is best to speak to your practitioner and get their advice before you receive this treatment, as skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis can become worse.
