Cupping, is used frequently to complement acupuncture. Cups placed at various points on the body stimulate your protective energy and generate movement of blood. The skin is the body’s largest organ, it has rich circulation and clears toxins quickly and efficiently.
Additionally poor circulation which resulted from the occlusion of capillaries in the muscle tissue may cause aching pain. Blood contains oxygen, and muscles which blood cannot reach will indicate symptoms of aching and numb pain. Cupping therapy removes local congestion and augments the circulation to the areas that were originally poorly supplied and thereby relieve the symptoms of numbness and aching pain. This action constitutes releasing pain from blood/chi stagnation.
