Cupping is a treatment technique that is widely used in China for thousands of years. Cupping uses negative suction pressure to create hyperemia or hemostasis around a person's skin to increases a person's Qi and blood flow and remove any obstructions under the treated areas. Once the obstructions are removed and Qi and blood circulation restored, the pain is reduced. In addition to pain, cupping can also be effective in removing “dampness”. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, dampness is the fluid that can acquired from the external environment, e.g., a person who swim a lot, or through the internal digestion process. The dampness or “toxin fluid” accumulates under the skin can cause pain and many other potential health issues. Receive regular cupping treatments can prevent the accumulation of dampness.
