Chinese Cupping Therapy
Cupping therapy is one of many tools we use in our medical practice.During the 2016 Olympics, many world top athletes were spotted having cup marks from using cupping therapy. Cupping is most commonly known to treat stiff muscle or muscle fatigue from over-exercising. However, Chinese cupping therapy can also to treat various medical conditions.
How is cupping done?Our clinic uses fire cupping. The air inside a glass cup is heated and as it cools, suction is created. The cup is then placed directly onto the skin stimulating muscle tissues. This can be considered as a reverse massage; instead of applying pressure onto the skin the cup lifts it instead. The suction of the cup allows increased blood circulation to the area treated, which results in relaxation and pain reduction within the muscles. Cup marks should disappear within a few days.
In our clinic we also use cupping to treat the following conditions:
- Anxiety & Depression
- Cold & Flu
- High Blood Pressure
- Chronic Muscular Pain
- Facial Paralysis
- Varicose Veins
- Fertility Enhancement
- Muscle Atrophy
