About Chinese Cupping

If you still haven't undergone Chinese cupping treatment you're probably asking the million dollar question: how does cupping heal?

Well, for starters, it would be best to view cupping based on its philosophical principle. Chinese traditional medicine believed in the balance between Yin energy and Yang energy. These can be translated loosely to positive and negative energies.

Achieving balance means good health, while an imbalance or disruption means sickness and the occurrence of diseases. Through cupping, traditional Eastern medicine seeks to establish balance and good harmony of your body by restoring the Yin and Yang equilibrium.

If you get sick, then your Yang factor probably is greater thus tilting the health equilibrium. Through the application of cupping treatment methods, some of the Yang factor can be flushed out and the Yin restored to full vitality. In this way, optimum health is restored.

It is in this light that cupping works and this is the basic philosophy for its curative and healing powers. It may sound too metaphysical and surreal but these philosophical bases do have scientific underpinnings.

In fact, the body is a comprehensive system that needs to be balanced in order to work properly. An imbalance to your system can make you sick. For example, if too much toxin made their way inside your system, it will create enormous disruptions in your body which could lead to sickness. In like manner, if cold air packets have penetrated your muscles nerves, it could cause common sickness and pains.

Cupping will use heat to suck out those toxins and accumulated stress and tensions. The suction created through cupping method will loosen impacted nerve endings thus restoring them to their original state.

If these happen, healing will occur. This is especially true if the therapist will use heat promoted cupping method. Heat has been used since ancient times for medical practices. Through the application of heat, the cold channels inside your body can be eliminated thus restoring balance of heat and cold.

The essential oils applied on the skin and the rubbing action associated with cupping also provides an effective healing solution. Normally, your back will receive liberal amounts of oils during cupping sessions. After establishing the cups on their appointed spots, the therapist will run the cups along your muscles and nerve endings. The massaging action coupled with the suction technique can stimulate activity of health cells. This is made possible through the promotion of excellent blood circulation. With good circulation and healthy activity and growth of cells, your body immune system can effectively fight diseases. This then will lead to good health.

Cupping is recommended principally for respiratory and lung disorders. It is believed that its action against colds is not through direct combat against virus, but through strengthening the capacity of the body to produce more anti-virus. Its action against arthritis and rheumatism can be attributed to the stimulation of muscles through the application of heat and friction during cupping sessions.

Cupping has been used in Traditional Medicine as a powerful and very effective method of fighting diseases and illnesses. Since ancient time to the present, voluminous records of anecdotal evidences and eyewitness testimonials have shown that indeed, cupping certainly heals.
