Chinese Cupping Therapy Liverpool
Cupping is an ancient form of therapy in which special cups are placed on the skin for a few minutes and heated, to create suction. Chinese cupping therapy is an alternative medicine that is used for many different reasons, including help with pain, reducing inflammation, as a form of deep tissue massage, improving blood flow, as well as to promote relaxation and well-being. Cupping dates back to ancient cultures in Egypt, China, and the Middle East. It is described in one of the world’s oldest medical textbooks, the Ebers Papyrus. The ancient Egyptians were using a form of cupping as far back as 1,550 B.C.
What is Chinese Cupping Therapy?
During a cupping treatment, the therapist warms the cup then applies it to your skin. As the air inside cools, a vacuum is created. This vacuum causes your skin to be sucked into the cup and as your blood vessels expand it reddens. The cup is then left in place for up to 15 minutes – the exact time depends on the area of treatment.
