Cupping is a skin stimulation therapy that is part of detoxification and detoxification methods. The suction cups, which are placed on the skin, should help eliminate toxins through the skin. There are three different types of suction cups: dry cups, wet cups with scarification and cupping massage.
Cupping therapy offers many health benefits that can often outweigh modern medical techniques. One of the greatest benefits of trying alternative practices such as cupping therapy, acupuncture or massage therapy is that these methods do not pose the risk of unwanted side effects as with some pharmaceutical drugs.
When treated with suction cups, a hollow container is applied to a specific skin area and a relative vacuum is created. This depression then exerts a suction effect on the tissues on which the sucker is placed. Sucking causes a revulsion of blood and lymphatic fluid into the underlying tissues. This promotes not only local irrigation but also the irrigation of internal organs which are reflexively connected to the treated skin areas. In addition, cupping stimulates metabolism, eliminates muscle tension and “agar” and activates the immune system. The wet suckers also cause bleeding that also allows toxins to escape.
Other benefits of this therapy:
1- Helps to reduce pain:
After reviewing dozens of randomized clinical trials testing cupping therapy in pain patients of all origins, a report in “Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine” found that cupping therapy significantly reduced pain by compared to usual drug treatments.
2- Promotes relaxation:
This may seem contradictory, but suction cups often help to relieve physical pain and help to get into a more relaxed state, as it puts the central nervous system to sleep. This is similar to acupuncture which, unless you have tried it, suggests that it is a painful treatment.
3- Improve the health of the skin:
Suckers are used to reduce herpes, cellulite, acne and inflammation of the skin. While studies have not shown that it can necessarily help with weight loss, the fact that it tones and firms the skin by improving blood circulation and expanding the capillaries, makes this treatment popular among celebrities .
4- Helps treat respiratory problems and colds:
Commonly used to help nourish the lungs and eliminate mucus or congestion, cupping therapy can be helpful in accelerating the healing time of respiratory diseases such as the flu or colds.
Suckers help improve immune function by moving blood and lymphatic fluid throughout the body, which is why it has been associated with reductions in lung disease (especially chronic cough), allergies, infections and asthma.
5- Improves digestion:
Acupuncture and cupping therapy are two popular ways to improve digestion and reduce the symptoms of disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome. This could be mainly because they can reduce a patient’s stress response, which is strongly related to a good digestive function.
