Cupping is a powerful detoxifying, pain relieving, and energy building modality that people all over the world use for health maintenance. A few of the conditions cupping has been known to have a positive effect on include:
The effects of cupping are more intense at the onset of treatments and taper off as your system becomes accustomed to the treatments as they cumulate. General effects include:
A common and unfortunate misconception regarding cupping is the misinterpretation of the discoloration. These are NOT "bruises" as cupping therapy does not cause injury when done properly by a trained professional. "Bruising" is caused by impact trauma with breakage of capillaries and a subsequent reactionary rush of fluids to the damaged area from the tissue compression/injury. There is NO COMPRESSION in properly employed suction cup therapy. Although it is quite common during Stationary Cupping (left static for 520 min.) to achieve dramatic 'marks' or 'discolourations', the less aggressive action of moving the cups in massage cupping minimizes the intensity and duration of the discolorations.
Often, when a condition exists within deeper structures where sufficient pathologic factors and stagnant fluids (toxins, blood, and lymph) are dredged up during treatment, discoloration will appear on the skin. THIS is the THERAPEUTICALLY DESIRED EFFECT. The more this is visible, the greater the level of stagnation and toxicity. The discoloration will fade in a few days. As treatments cumulate and the release of stagnation and buildup has been dispursed or drainedusually by the 3rd or 4th treatment no discoloration is likely to occur. This is clearly the result of having internal unwanted toxins systematically purged.

Cupping therapy is SAFE for people of all ages. However, their are conditions contraindicated for cupping therapy to include severe conditions (i.e. cardiac and renal failure, hemorrhagic diseases, hernias, etc.) BEFORE any therapy is rendered, each patient is evaluated to ensure cupping therapy is an appropriate course of therapy (elective or corrective).
