Mode of action and worth knowing
Cupping is a so-called draining procedure without side effects, which makes the vacuum principle useful. One of the most positive characteristics of this cupping natural healing method is the activation of the body's own substances and the strengthening of the immune system. Basically, a distinction is made between bloodless cupping and bloodless cupping, whereby the latter corresponds to the earlier practised bloodletting. With bloodless cupping, which you can do with this high-quality cupping set, the cups are placed on oiled body parts. With a pump, which generates vacuum, the blood circulation is purposefully promoted by the negative pressure. The cupping glasses should remain on the skin for some time and be guided slowly along the muscle reflex zones. If a cupping glass is placed on the desired part of the body, the valve of the head must be pulled up. After attaching the pump, the air is pumped onto the glass, creating the negative pressure that has an effect on health. The cupping glasses should remain on the skin for 10 to 20 minutes, at the end simply open the valve to release the glass from the skin. The set contains cupping glasses of different sizes, so that there is a suitable size for every part of the body. The high-quality plastic is robust and offers a high level of hygiene.
