Acupuncture

Acupuncture is originally from China over 2500 years and has become popular over the world in the last decades.

Cupping

Cupping therapy is a form of alternative medicine in which glass cups are placed on the skin to create suction. Cupping removes any stagnation in the body and open the meridians.  It is effective when combined with acupuncture or Chinese medicines in treating various diseases and conditions, such as Herpes zoster, Acne, Facial paralysis.

Generally, the cup is left in place for about 5-15 minutes. The skin becomes reddened due to the build-up of wind, cold and damp and stagnation of blood and qi flow. Some bruising along the site of the rim of the cup is expected or where the cups are. The bruising will usually subside between 3-5 days depending on the severity of the condition. It is the body’s response way of detoxifying.

Cupping is mainly recommended for the treatment of muscular aches and pains, gastro-intestinal disorders, skin conditions, lung diseases (especially chronic cough and asthma), gynaecological disorders and paralysis. The areas of the body that are fleshy are preferred sites for cupping.

As a result of cupping therapy, blood supply is increased, and old, previously stagnant blood begins to circulate. In this way, toxic waste substances are dissolved, and circulated through the blood, where they can easily be excreted from the body. Considering this, it is important to drink plenty of fluid following the therapy.

Due to the increased blood circulation, strained muscles become more supple, reducing muscle tension and pain. Just as diseases related to the inner organs show signs on the skin surface, certain skin stimuli can affect the internal organs in a phenomenon known as cutivisceral reflex. In this way, cupping therapy can positively impact the internal organs. Following the therapy, some blue flecks may appear on the skin surface and urine may be darker in colour. These are all positive signs of healing and detoxifying reactions.

  • Improves Circulation of Qi & Blood
  • Removes Wind, Cold & Dampness

The effects of cupping therapy include the following:

  • Stimulation of blood circulation, metabolism, and lymph flow

  • Regulation of energy pathways
  • Stimulation of organ reflex zones on the skin
  • Strengthening and detoxification of the connective tissue
  • Loosening strained and painful muscles
