Cupping is a well known bodywork and healing therapy. Egyptian hieroglyphics document the use of fire cupping as therapy approximately 3,500 years ago. This practice was passed down primarily by women healers in Europe, Africa and Asia.
Today the Chinese cupping procedure is performed with glass or plastic cups. It creates negative pressure over the skin drawing out pathogens, releasing muscle tension and pain as well as increasing the flow of blood and Qi (energy). It is also beneficial for respiratory and musculoskeletal disorders. Usually the procedure is combined with acupuncture treatments but can be used as it’s own therapy.
Cupping is not exclusive to Traditional Chinese Medicine. Variations of this treatment were used by ancient Egyptians, North American Indians, early Greeks, and in other Asian and European countries. Cupping therapy was recommended by Hippocrates, the man whom many consider to be the “Father of Modern Medicine,” in his guide to clinical treatment.
At the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, Multi-Gold Medalist Michael Phelps was spotted with the temporary marks left from this therapy. It’s an ancient and effective technique that has been used across the globe for thousands of years!
