Cupping is a popular alternative medical approach used by the Chinese. It is a safe and therapeutic practice that improves blood flow and relieves muscle aches. Cupping helps release toxins from body tissues and organs. It facilitates the flow of energy through the areas of pain, promoting relaxation and wellness. At Healthcare Acupuncture Centre, we provide reliable cupping treatment in Edmonton. Give us a call today for a free consultation.
Cupping therapy involves using cups made of glass, bamboo, or silicone. Our therapist uses a flammable substance such as herbs, alcohol or paper, puts it in a cup and ignites it. Once the fire is off, the cup is placed down on your skin. The air inside the cup gradually cools down, creating a vacuum. This causes the blood vessels to expand as the skin reddens a little. But this disappears in 2 to 3 days. Our therapist might also move around the cups creating a massage effect for enhanced relief.
This therapy improves circulation and encourages tissues to release harmful toxins. Cupping therapy combined with acupuncture and herbal medicine treats a wide variety of ailments from digestive issues, skin issues and many more. There aren’t many side effects of cupping therapy. The skin marked with a circular pattern will disappear in some days. Proven to be effective and safe, cupping therapy is practiced safely in our clinic.
