Cupping has been used in TCM since the third century B.C. Traditionally, cupping involves using an open flame with a rounded "cup" made of glass, pottery, or bamboo, so that a vacuum is created and cups adhere tightly to the skin. In recent years, other forms of cupping have developed such as manual pneumatic pumps, or electronic cupping devices which are less abrasive to the skin. Several cups may be applied at one time to a particular part of the body.
The jars are left in position for 10 to 15 minutes while the vacuum inside the cup produces suction on the skin and increases the blood flow and circulation. Cupping is particularly helpful for conditions such as inflammation, lower back pain and stiff neck and shoulders as it increases circulation and the mobility of affected areas. Cupping is also effective for respiratory issues like common colds or asthma. For more information on cupping in Torrance and Redondo Beach, CA contact us.
