Cupping therapy is an extraordinary technique that has been used for more than 2000 years by healing practitioners and still continues to be the widely recommended therapy by professionals for healing and recovering people around the world.

Every injury, illness, surgery, and most importantly toxic substances that we have been exposed to from the conception onwards remain present in our physical body which eventually leads to other health conditions and diseases if it stays inside the body for a long period.

Cupping therapy is a holistic treatment where special cups are placed on the skin for a set of minutes to create a suction at the surface of the body which removes all the toxins, waste, and impurities from the body through the blood.

The process of cupping, as a result, helps in balancing the flow of Qi in your blood which in turn makes your immune system stronger, provides a boost to your overall body, relieves almost all kinds of body pain, releases muscles, calms your nervous system and has multiple other health benefits from inside to out.

We at HealthHolistic provide cupping therapy that is specifically designed to pull out all the toxin build-up and muscle spasm by pulling the blockage out of deeper tissues at particular areas of your body after which new flow of blood helps in revitalizing and restoring your complete body to provide you with health benefits which you can experience immediately after the process.

Types of Cupping / How It is performed

There are two main types of cupping which are wet and dry cupping and both are practised using glass cups or the more current ones that fall under the hand-held pump for more accuracy of power applied for suction onto the skin. Wet cupping is a form of bloodletting which is then accompanied by cupping the area of the affected site to allow healing to take place. The dry cupping is mainly done using a glass cup and accompanied by putting flames into the cups to allow a suction from the exchange of gases which is then applied onto the skin to get the best outcome. The cups are usually aligned within the special areas or the acupuncture points of the body parts to get rid of pathogens in the body and to get a maximum possible result out of it.

Cupping therapy amongst few others is an integrated therapy added onto the skin to decrease pain and allows more interstitial flow helping to heal and improve your day to day performance. Unlike massage and other compressive force of therapy, cupping provides a lifting effect on the skin for a better flow of blood and lessens the stagnation process of the blood flow.

Why Choose Cupping?

Besides all the benefits that it offers, cupping is also helpful for diagnostics and it is therapeutic as well, which can provide you and your therapist with three critical information.

First, cupping therapy helps to figure out the kind of problem or condition that your internal or external body is dealing with. The therapist identifies the issue relating to toxin build-up or muscle spasm when the skin under the cup causes a color change, whereas any problem relating to bone or nerve will cause no color change onto the skin. This can help diagnose and cure the problem quickly and effectively.

Second, cupping helps in determining where exactly the problem is, as the cups are usually placed upon an area that is slightly larger than the painful area in order to ensure that the painful area is covered completely. A part of the skin under the cups will color, and some of it won’t, while an equal amount of suction and pressure has been used with all cups. Even on the skin under a singular cup, some parts may color with the rest remaining the same. This helps in finding the right pain points to target for the cure.

Third, cupping therapy also leads to discovering the severity of the body problem. The easy or moderate blockage will cause the skin under a cup to turn pink or red color which can take 24 to 48 hours for the color to go away. On the other hand, severe stagnation and blockage can cause the skin to turn deep red, purple, or even black which takes nearly a week for the dark color to disappear by providing you the overall heal and relief. All these details are helpful not only for the diagnosis but cupping itself is a treatment that brings altering impact on your body.

The therapy has widespread advantages as it wakes the body up and makes you feel invigorated and at the same time produces a profound level of healing across your physical self.
