Cupping is a good alternative to acupuncture especially for those who are apprehensive toward needles.

What is Cupping Therapy?

Cupping therapy is a traditional Chinese technique in which suction cups are applied to the skin. Cupping therapy is known to draw toxins, blood and other energy blockages out of the body. This procedure can be applied to various parts of your body depending on what condition you have.  Cupping is often used for ailments like back pain, stiff muscles around the body, tension, stress, and much more.

What is Cupping Therapy Used For?

Cupping Therapy is used for so many different types of conditions and symptoms. The most common uses are pain relief, blood circulation problems, respiratory conditions like asthma & bronchitis and skin conditions such as acne. Cupping opens up the pores which minimize the chances of bacteria and dirt getting stuck inside them. Cupping also promotes enhanced blood circulation which can help ease tension in the muscles and allow for injuries to heal faster.

Cupping therapy has also been known for its relaxing and soothing effects on the body and mind. Cupping is often combined with acupuncture to help experience a deep sense of relief and relaxation.

How Cupping Therapy Works

Although cupping was initially meant for just pain relief, the list of applications continues to grow. In certain circumstances, people have even looked to cupping therapy as an early alternative to surgery.  Although applications like this are limited, you can start to get an idea as to how effective cupping can be. Cupping will not be able to treat every condition but it is worth exploring your options as cupping is generally painless, harmless and doesn’t present any aggravating or dangerous side effects.

Cupping is a gentle form of treatment in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction.  The cups vary in shape and material.  Some cups are made of glass, some of the more flexible materials like rubber.  Cupping can also be used in conjunction with heat and/or fire to promote more suction or a lubricant to allow movement of the suction cups during therapy.  It is important to note that these additional methods are not necessary to experience the benefits of cupping therapy.  Regardless of the types of cups or the addition of heat or lubricants, the purpose of cupping therapy remains the same and that is to pinpoint areas to promote blood circulation in order to experience an array of benefits.

Benefits of Cupping Therapy

As mentioned earlier, cupping is often used as an alternative to acupuncture however it is also used in conjunction with acupuncture for more effective results.  Cupping therapy can be applied multiple times per week and unlike acupuncture, the heavy feel after therapy is not present so cupping is commonly used as a method to get loose and feel good before competing in sports.  Cupping is also known to help you feel better faster and more immediately than acupuncture where you normally have to wait a day or two to experience the healing effects.

Cupping can leave marks on the skin in the shape of circles.  These are caused due to the increased blood flow to these areas and are not at all a cause for concern.  These marks usually disappear within 3-7 days and as cupping is used more frequently, the blood flow to those areas are more prevalent and can help the marks disappear more quickly. 

Is Cupping Therapy Right For You?

There are some objections around cupping as many people do not believe in the benefits that cupping therapy presents.  Cupping therapy has been around for thousands of years and is used by certified doctors around the world so it is very difficult to dispute the integrity and effectiveness of cupping.  If you have questions about the procedure, our cuppers who perform cupping therapy in Markham are extremely well educated about this procedure and will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have pertaining to cupping, the risks and benefits.

In unique circumstances, cupping can cause skin infections if used too much.  When you visit our clinic for cupping therapy in Markham, our cuppers will discuss the frequency limitations surrounding cupping therapy to ensure that you only experience the benefits while avoiding the limited amount of adverse effects associated with the procedure.
