Cupping Therapy at Acute Acupuncture Wellington

Updated: Dec 20, 2023


Cupping is a traditional Chinese method of healing, that has been widely used for centuries. It is a therapy method that involves creating a vacuum inside a cup and sticking it to the surface of the skin. The vacuum inside the cup helps to create a suction, normally massage oil or massage wax is added to the skin. This massage wax or massage oil allows the cup to glide over the skin. Cupping at Acute Acupuncture Wellington can help to stimulate blood flow, relax muscles, and remove toxins from the body.


One of the most significant benefits of cupping at Acute Acupuncture Wellington is that it helps to improve blood circulation. Blood is responsible for carrying oxygen and essential nutrients to cells in the body. When blood flow is increased, it can help to supply these vital components to the body's organs and tissues, ensuring optimal health and well-being. Cupping can help to stimulate blood circulation, allowing for increased oxygen and nutrient delivery.



Cupping can also help to remove toxins from the body. The vacuum inside the cup creates suction, which can pull stagnant blood and toxins from the deeper layers of skin toward the surface. It is important to stay well hydrated after cupping as these toxins can then be flushed out of the body through the bloodstream and kidneys. This process can help to improve overall body detoxification, leading to a healthier and more balanced body.


Another significant benefit of cupping at Acute Acupuncture Wellington is that it can help to relax muscles. Often, pain and discomfort occur due to tension and contraction of muscles. The tension and contraction of muscles create stagnation and reduced blood flow in the body trapping toxins in the muscles. By using cupping and stimulating blood flow, cupping can help to bring oxygen and nutrients to tense muscles, allowing them to relax. The suction created by the cup can also help to massage the muscles locally to the cupping site, reducing tension and promoting relaxation.


The ratio of effectiveness with cupping at Acute Acupuncture Wellington can be explained on a molecular level by focusing on circulation, toxins, relaxing muscles, and blood flow. Cupping therapy helps to stimulate blood flow, remove toxins from the body, and relax muscles, leading to a healthier and more balanced body. When combined with other forms of therapy and healthcare practices such as Acupuncture and Tuina Medical Massage at Acute Acupuncture Wellington, cupping can be an effective tool to enhance overall well-being and contribute to a more healthy and vitalized lifestyle.
