How Cupping Therapy Works

Cupping therapy works by reducing the pain we feel in our bodies.  In alternative medicine, pain is believed to be caused by problems relating to your Qi flow.  This can be related to stress in the body, imbalances of hormones and fluids, lack of blood flow, and temperature in the muscles and joints.  When a suction cup is place on a problem area, the vacuum pull of the cup creates warmth and circulation in the area.  Very soon, you will feel that the pain is reduced.

In Chinese medicine, all the organs are connected together.  So if you have a problem with one organ, it can affect the health of other parts of your body.  For example, it is believed that the kidneys are connected to a persons aging.  A person with an imbalance or disease in the kidneys will experience more graying of the hair, wrinkled and dry skin, etc. 

The use of cupping therapy has many benefits and can be applied in many treatments.  Some of the conditions cupping therapy can be used in are:
  • Constipation, IBS, diarrhea
  • Headaches
  • Back Pain
  • Arthritis
  • Fatigue
  • Sciatica
  • Skin Problems
  • Period cramps
  • Weight problems
