Chinese Cupping therapy is an ancient folk medicine and forms part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (T.C.M.). It is used in several, European countries, including Russia and Greece as well as throughout Asia. Cupping therapy is used frequently and complements acupuncture.
It is a traditional therapeutic therapy that has been practiced by medically trained, massage therapists, lay and household practitioners, in many parts of the world for centuries. Glass suction cups, placed at various points on the body, create a vacuum that draws toxins to the skinís surface. This stimulates the personís immune response. The effect of the suction is to create local congestion of blood and to release connective tissue adhesions.
The skin is the bodyís largest organ and it clears the body toxins quickly and efficiently, because it has the richest circulation.
