Therapeutic Aspects of Cupping Therapy
Furthermore, Cupping therapy at Loft Thai Spa involves a specialized approach to enhance your overall well-being. This age-old technique draws upon traditional Chinese medicine, utilizing specialized glass cups and heat to gently create a vacuum on the skin's surface. This suction stimulates blood flow, nerves, and muscles beneath the skin, benefiting the nervous system, hormone function, and blood circulation.
The process may result in distinctive purple blotches on the skin, indicative of underlying conditions. The intensity of the color varies, offering insights into your well-being. Light pink hues suggest good health and normal blood circulation, while red hues indicate mild warmth and muscle fatigue. Bright red hues may signify severe muscle pain and congestion, while pale shades denote reduced breath and blood flow. Darker hues may indicate severe congestion and accumulation of coldness.
Post-cupping care involves avoiding exposure to cold water and air conditioning and prioritizing rest to prevent fatigue. This therapy effectively stimulates blood flow, making it particularly beneficial for individuals with desk jobs or prolonged computer usage. Additionally, it contributes to enhancing beauty, bestowing the skin with a radiant, rosy appearance. The temporary skin discoloration resulting from the therapy is harmless and naturally fades within 5–7 days.
Recent research supports the diverse benefits of cupping therapy, such as decreasing muscle activity for pain reduction, promoting muscle relaxation through improved microcirculation, aiding in tissue repair and angiogenesis, enhancing local tissue metabolism for healing, and activating the lymphatic system to expel excess fluids and toxins.
Additionally, it induces systemic comfort and relaxation, proving effective for musculoskeletal pain like chronic lower back pain, neck pain, and fibromyalgia, as well as for digestive problems such as bloating, gastric reflux, and constipation. It also aids in improving recovery from conditions like cough, asthma, and the common cold.
Various Techniques and Suitability of Cupping
At Thomson Chinese Medicine, we practice traditional fire cupping using glass cups, offering both dry cupping and wet cupping techniques.
Dry cupping is the preferred method most of the time, involving the placement of cups over several areas to create a vacuum that lifts soft tissues and provides an upward stretch within muscles and fascia. This includes stationary cupping, where a small cotton fire soaked in alcohol is briefly lit, placed into the cup, and swiftly removed, followed by cup placement on the body for approximately 10 minutes. You may experience a slightly tight sensation and suction around the cupped area. Alternatively, gliding cupping involves the application of oil on the body, allowing cups to glide gently along meridians for about 10 minutes, covering larger areas more swiftly, often utilized on the back and thighs.
Wet cupping, a form of bloodletting cupping, involves small punctures made in specific body areas using a specialized lancet needling device, followed by stationary cupping on these points. This process enables stagnant blood to exit through the lacerated skin and collect in the cups, resembling an Islamic bloodletting technique called "Hijama." However, our focus lies more on acupuncture points along meridian channels.
Cupping is generally suitable for most patients, except those who are physically weak or have certain conditions like inflamed or sensitive skin, high fever, a tendency to bleed easily (such as those on blood thinners like warfarin), or pregnant women (specific points must be avoided).
Concerning the marks left by cupping, these distinctive small circular bruises may appear on areas where cups were applied but are usually painless and akin to those seen on athletes. They indicate skin discoloration due to broken blood vessels just beneath the skin, similar to a bruise, reflecting the level of blood and Qi stagnation, toxin accumulation, or dampness accumulation in the body. The color and pattern of these marks reflect the level of stagnation in the respective area, with darker colors indicating more stagnation.
These harmless marks gradually fade and typically disappear within approximately one week, depending on the skin's regenerative ability. Regular cupping sessions often result in visibly lighter marks over time.
Light pink marks tend to fade within a few minutes to an hour, while darker red marks take between 3 days to a week (up to 2 weeks for older injuries). If you prefer to avoid marks on certain areas, kindly inform our TCM physicians beforehand.
Regarding the frequency of cupping, it is generally recommended to undergo sessions 1-2 times per week. Our physicians will assess the intensity of marks to determine if further treatments are necessary. Although cupping is typically safe and rarely causes side effects, some individuals may occasionally experience dizziness, sensitivity around the treatment area, or develop small blisters.
