Updated: Nov 26, 2023

Cupping uses a cup as a tool and uses methods such as burning fire and pumping air to generate negative pressure so that it can be adsorbed on the body surface and cause local blood stasis to achieve dredging of menstruation, activating qi and blood circulation, reducing swelling and pain, dispelling wind and cold, etc. Therapeutics that work. Cupping therapy has a long history in China. As early as the silk book "Fifty-two Prescriptions for Diseases" written in the Western Han Dynasty, there are records about the "angle method". The angle method is similar to the cupping therapy in later generations. Cupping therapy was also popular in ancient Greece and Rome in foreign countries.

Cupping therapy is also called blood stasis therapy. It uses a cup as a tool and uses burning, suction and other methods to expel the air in the cup to form a negative pressure. The strong suction and pulling force causes the cup body to be adsorbed to the treatment site of the human body, causing local congestion, Congestion acts as a benign stimulus to the human body and has therapeutic effects such as dredging meridians, reducing swelling and relieving pain, dispelling wind and cold, promoting qi and activating blood circulation, thereby achieving the purpose of preventing and treating diseases and strengthening the body. Many ancient countries have similar therapies, and the current suction tank was invented by Europeans.

In recent years, cupping therapy has been used for a wide variety of conditions, including people suffering from shingles, facial nerve palsy, coughs, breathing difficulties, and acne. Cupping is the most commonly used method of treating pain, and has been used to treat cancer pain and lower back pain in previous studies. In two randomized clinical trials published in the journal Alternative Medicine, the group that received tank therapy had more favorable results in pain relief. But these are just two small sample experiments, and it is difficult to draw solid conclusions based on limited data. Most people who receive cupping therapy use cupping as an alternative medicine therapy, and its main effect is similar to massage.

Our common cupping is usually glass cupping or air-exhausted plastic jars, and the former is generally used in hospitals. In addition, there are many materials for tanks, such as bamboo tanks, ceramic tanks, silicone tanks, enamel tanks, stainless steel tanks, meteorite tanks, etc. Different materials have different characteristics. Glass jars are transparent and easy to view and operate. Bamboo jars, ceramic jars, stone jars and other jar therapies that are not well understood by the public are suitable for more people.
