Acute Acupuncture: Cupping

Cupping is an ancient technique that has been recently made famous in the news by professional athletes and Olympians such as Michael Phelps.

The technique of cupping involves the use of small glass cups and the use of a heat source that is then placed on the skin for a few minutes to create suction. The use of cupping is similar to a deep tissue massage but less force or pressure is used to create the same effects. Cupping relaxes Muscle tension, pulls out toxins that are embedded into the musculature, helps relieve pain, helps remove inflammation, and increases circulation by improving the flow of blood and Qi.

Cupping can be used alone however it is best used alongside Acupuncture and or Tuina to maximize positive results for the patient.
