Popular across traditional Chinese, Korean, and Tibetan cultures, Cupping is an alternative form of treatment that has been in practice since ancient times. Its mention is found in Eber's Papyrus, a medical text belonging to 16th century B.C. Egypt. The father of modern medicine Hippocrates Aldo explored this form of therapy at length in his writings.
- HOW DOES CUPPING THERAPY WORK?
In this method, some heated cups are used to create suctions in specific parts of the body that require healing. The cup decompresses the tissue and muscle of the area and improves blood circulation. Cupping is done to promote natural healing and relieve inflammation.
Practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine believe that cupping alleviates stagnation of blood and lymph nodes from the body, thus promoting the flow "qi' or 'life force'.
- BENEFITS OF CUPPING THERAPY
Cupping therapy is believed to cure a plethora of ailments. It creates a balance between yin and yang in the body or the two extremes of positive and negative. It is also believed to increase resistance to pathogens, get rid of toxins from the body, and naturally heal pain.
- HEALS PAIN
Cupping has been linked to reducing pain and inflammation. It can be beneficial in treating pain in areas such as neck, shoulder, back, and knee Cupping can also be used for getting relief from extreme headaches and migraines.
- AIDS BLOOD CIRCULATION
Cupping increases blood circulation in the areas where the suction is created. This flow of blood helps in relaxing tensed muscles, aids in cell repair, and minimizes the appearance of cellulite, scars, and stretch marks.
- RELEASES TOXINS
The buildup of toxins often causes various diseases in the body. While there is a dedicated mechanism in the body that works constantly to remove toxins from the body, its function gets affected when the body has high levels of toxins. Cupping helps in eliminating excess toxins through the lymphatic system.
- SOOTHES ANXIETY
The gliding movement of the cups across your body stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system. As a result, you feel calm and relaxed during and after the treatment.

Cupping is said to help those suffering from varicose veins. With the help of cupping therapy, it's possible to bring in a fresh flow of blood to the areas where the damaged valves are present.

Cupping is known to clear congestion in the body. Diseases such as asthma and pneumonia lead to fluid buildup in the Jungs, leading to respiratory complications. The suction cups clear out the fluid accumulation and create a flow of fresh blood to the lungs. Suction cups are usually placed on the back or the chest to perform this treatment.
- DOES CUPPING THERAPY ACTUALLY WORK?
Conducting high-quality research on the effectiveness of cupping is quite difficult, because of a lack of an appropriate placebo comparator. There hasn't been enough research in the realm of cupping. But now that this form of therapy is garnering widespread attention, we hope there will be more research about the efficacy of this ancient treatment, so more people can reap its benefits. It's important to note that cupping is not something new and gimmicky. While the west has just started to explore the benefits of cupping, it's an ancient practice and it's completely safe. People have been using cupping for pain relief and improvement of blood circulation for many years. And for a treatment that has survived centuries after centuries, there has to be some advantage that led to its popularity. The only minor inconvenience could be the temporary discoloration that occurs on the skin because of suction, but they fade away in a couple of days.
