Cupping therapy – improve blood flow and promote cell repair
The technique of cupping is simple. Traditional in China bamboo cups where used, and now silicon and plastic are popular in the West, but most often a specially made glass jar is used, a flame is inserted creating a vacuum affect. The jar is then placed onto the skin and by drawing on the tissues, the cupping automatically draws on or mobilises the local fluids. We provide cupping therapy to Melbourne clients as part of our holistic health treatments.
It is a highly effective way of dispersing stagnant blood around old injuries or areas of overuse, eg, frozen shoulder, or back pain. Therefore, any of the pathogenic factors (“malevolent spirits”) such as Heat, Cold or Damp will be dispersed.
