What is cupping therapy?
Cupping is a common treatment modality in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
What does cupping do?
It is often used on injured or painful areas to help flush blood circulation, on extremely tight muscles and to release myofascial restrictions.
Process of cupping
Different styles of cupping include stationary cups – left in place for anywhere from 5-20 mins, sliding cups – applied to one area and then moved around to other areas without releasing the suction, and flash cupping – repeatedly applied and removed from the same area.
Will cupping leave permanent marks?
The cups can commonly leave red or purple bruises that take a few days to go away but the pain relief is instant and can last for days or weeks.
Tight muscles will feel much looser upon removal of the cups.
Cupping treatments are often included in an acupuncture session (if the ailment requires) or can be done as separate treatments.
Risk of cupping
Is cupping therapy safe?
Cupping is safe if you go to a trained health professional.
But you could have these side effects in the area where the cups touch your skin: Mild discomfort. Burns.
Are there risks involved with cupping?
Most experts agree that cupping is safe.
If those treated don’t mind the circular discolorations (which fade over a few days or weeks), side effects tend to be limited to the pinch experienced during skin suction.
It’s quite unusual that cupping causes any serious problems (though, rarely, skin infections have been reported).
