Cupping is a therapy in which a negative pressure created through a jar or cup that is applied on local body surface to remove stagnation and promote free flow of Qi and blood, diminishing swelling and pain.
Cupping was originally called “horn therapy”, but there are also variations adopted in other countries such as Greece, France, Italy, Turkey, Eastern Europe and even as far as South America. Cupping’s long history of use in acupuncture practice has been well noted, however, it can be seen as a therapy in its own right.
Cupping is a safe, non-invasive, and an inexpensive technique. It is capable of treating a myriad of conditions, such as cold & flu, upper respiratory infections, and problems of the internal organs.. Recently, cupping has been in the media for muscular pain, bone pain and spasms, particularly on the back and shoulders.
Cupping disperses and moves Qi and Blood by exerting suction and pressure on the prescribed area. Cupping is primarily used when the Qi is inhibited at certain points, or when Qi stagnation needs to be drawn to the surface of the body from deep within. For instance, cupping can be used to pull out such conditions as “wind-cold”, which in Chinese medicine is believed to be an exogenous pathogenic factor, which will affect the Lung organ. In this manner it can treat Cough, Congestion, and Tightness in the Chest.
