Cupping Therapy in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Babylon, New York



How Cupping Therapy Works

Cupping therapy creates suction in certain areas of the body. This suction causes negative pressure, which draws the skin away from the body. Traditional medicine experts state that this causes muscle tissue to loosen, increases blood flow and has a sedative effect on the nervous system. Experts believe cupping therapy can affect tissue as deep as four inches from the skin, making it an ideal option when a malady calls for deep-tissue treatment.

During a cupping treatment, the practitioner leaves the cups in place for up to 10 minutes, depending on the area of the body and the type of cupping. This allows time for the suction to work, and gives the recipient time to relax and enjoy the sensation of negative pressure.


Equipment Used in Cupping Therapy

While acupuncture calls for acupuncture needles, the thought of which may make you queasy, cupping therapy does not involve breaking the skin. In fact, most people who have tried cupping therapy say it is not painful at all. Cupping therapy involves the use of small cups or jars. In traditional cupping therapy, these cups are glass, bamboo, or pottery. Do-it-yourself cupping sets sometimes include glass cups, although plastic and silicone are much more common materials. Typically, cupping therapy sets include cups in several different sizes as well as two or more cups of the same size so you can use more than one at the same time.
