Fire Cupping...

Cupping is a very effective and rapid method to relieve muscle tension.  This method is especially helpful when cupping is applied to the neck and shoulder areas.  Long hours on the computer is a common cause of neck and back pain and cupping is a great method to provide immediate relaxation and relief.   As one of the primary methods of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), cupping dates back to the 4th century, when the famous herbal master Ge Hong described a form of cupping in “A Handbook of Prescriptions”.  Later writings from the Tang and Qing dynasties described cupping methods in further detail and elaborated on a type of cupping that could stop headaches, dizziness and abdominal discomfort.

 

Today, most acupuncturists use cups made of thick glass or plastic. Glass cups are the preferred method of delivery, because they do not break as easily and they allow the acupuncturist to see the skin and evaluate the effects of treatment.  The two basic fire cupping methods used are stationary and sliding (with oil).

 

Is cupping safe? Does it hurt?

Cupping is considered very safe, however it does produce light bruising on the skin. As the skin under a cup is drawn up, the blood vessels at the surface of the skin expand – This may result in small, circular bruises on the areas where the cups were applied. These bruises are painless and generally disappear within a few days of treatment.
