Cupping therapy, a safe, painless, and non-invasive technique, is used in traditional Chinese medicine for several thousand years.
Cupping uses suction to bring toxic blood, phlegm, and other material to the surface of the body. Your immune system then discharges it naturally in the days that follow.
Cupping is generally recommended for the treatment of pain, chronic disease and musculo-skeletal pain, gastrointestinal disorders, lung diseases (especially chronic cough and asthma), and paralysis, neck, shoulder pain, arthritis, low back pain, numbness of the arms and legs, etc.
After cupping you will probably have a ring-mark, bruise, or skin discoloration for several days (maximum for a week or two). These are signs of toxicity that has risen to the surface for release. As the marks dissipate, the toxicity is leaving you.
Don’t take a shower for the next 12 hours, and if it itches, it is best not to scratch it. If you have any concerns, please contact the practitioner.
