Cupping is a physical method involving the placement of glass cups on the skin, often used in conjunction with acupuncture. Traditionally, cupping has been used for releasing stiff muscles, headache relief, and cold/flu relief, and is very safe when performed by an experienced practitioner. A vacuum is created within the cup, which is then placed on the skin, gently drawing in to increase circulation to the area. It helps to promote healing & immune processes by helping to draw blood to the area and it feels awesome! One thing to note is that cupping may leave a temporarily coloured mark on the skin – depending on the amount of release in that area, these marks may remain for a couple of hours to up to a week. The marks are painless, but may be interesting to others to see. At Bloom Chinese Medicine, we love cupping and are experienced in its applications.
