Benefits of Cupping Therapy An effective method that has withstood the test of time, cupping is an ancient technique that has been used to treat pain and various other disorders. The therapy of cupping is noninvasive and low risk if administered by a professional. The traditional method of cupping uses a small round cup made of thick glass with a rolled rim to ensure uniform and air-tight contact with he skin in order to preserve a vacuum effect. Negative pressure is created by heating the air within the cup, then allowing it to cool and contract while in contact with the skin. The air is heated by setting a flame to a flammable material and just before the flame is extinguished, the out of the cup is positioned firmly against the skin at the desired location. Another method is to use a manual hand-pump to create the vacuum. Physiological effects of cupping Studies have shown that the physiological effects of cupping may result in the following: • Increase of circulation surrounding the treated area, enabling toxins trapped deep in the soft tissue layers to rise to the body surface • Acupuncture analgesia is prompted by the stimulation of the small diameter nerves in muscles, which then send impulses to the spinal cord. The three neural centers (spinal cord, mid-brain, and pituitary) are subsequently activated, releasing chemical transmitters, such as monoamines and endorphins, thus blocking the pain messages • Release of morphine-like substances, serotonin or cortisol which can lead to pain relief Common pain and disorders that are treated by cupping are chronic neck, shoulder, and back pain, and musculoskeletal diseases. There are numerous studies and cases where many patients have found relief through cupping therapy.
