Acupuncture work with tiny needles by insertion to the skins epidermis. These needles ease the pain and suffering of one’s individual.
There is another technique included in acupuncture treatments, it’s what we call “Cupping”. Cupping is also considered to be a way of Chinese medicine. It is an alternative to the use of tiny conventional needles. The history of this kind of treatment also originated from China and is part of their traditional Chinese medicine. This treatment has been developed 2500 years ago.
Methods of Cupping Treatment
What is the difference of a cupping treatment from the use of acupuncture needles? Does Cupping work? How does cupping work for detoxification?
The strategy used behind cupping is suction power. This method and technique starts by taking a glass cup containing a cotton ball swabbed with alcohol. The cotton ball with alcohol is then captivated and ignited. The glass cup is then placed at a specific location on the individual's skin or epidermis after the cotton ball has been removed. The individual's skin then increases up in the glass cup and blood flow circulates and rushes to the area because of the vacuum created inside the glass cup. This technique is known as “Fire Cupping” and practitioners’ believe it to be the most effective technique.
There are other practitioners who prefer the use of the suction cup method instead of the fire cupping method. In the suction method, air is replaced as fire. After the cup is placed on the skin of the individual, the air is sanctioned from the cup manually. To remove fats and cellulites from the body, oil is first applied to the skin. The cups are manually moved up and down the surrounding area. This is really very effective for weight loss.
This method of treatment also follows the meridian lines. These cups are generally placed at the five meridian lines on our back. By using the meridian points, cupping can help rest our 'qi' and also focus more on our particular illnesses. It is believed to impact cells up to four inches wide deeply from the exterior epidermis. Toxins and poisons can be launched from the body. Obstructions can be removed and also blood vessels and bloodstream can be rejuvenated.
