Chinese Cupping
What is Cupping?
Cupping is a common technique used to supplement acupuncture treatment. Cupping involves creating a vacuum by suctioning out of the oxygen under a plastic cup while it is placed on the patient's skin. This technique is particularly useful for various types of muscular pain in the back and extremities. These conditions are thought to be the result of stagnant blood and Qi. Cupping helps to move the stagnation.
