Cupping therapy is said to open the ‘Meridians’ of the body. Meridians are the conduits within each of us through which energy flows to reach every part of the body, its organs and tissues. Opening the flow of energy, or increasing the circulation in the body strengthens its ability to heal.
Cupping is used for lower back pain, sprains, soft tissue injuries, sports injuries and helping relieve fluid from the lungs, from chest congestion or chronic bronchitis. In addition, it can alleviate the symptoms of or resolve menstrual and digestive problems.
Patients report that the sensation during treatment simply feels as if something or someone is tugging at their skin. It can have the sensation of a deep massage.
The only side effect of this treatment is that there may be what looks like circular bruises where the cupping was done. This painless bruising typically clears up in 3-10 days. It is best to keep the area covered and free from drafts. To reduce the appearance of the bruises, you can apply arnica cream to the affected area and drink plenty of water.
