The history of cupping: The century old cure was already being used in Chinese medicine 2000 years ago, over 5000 years ago in Mesopotamia and also in classical Antiquity by Greek and Egyptian doctors. Cow horns were used earlier as a cupping aid.
Mode of action: Cupping belongs to the detoxification procedures and can be used completely without any side effects. The success of this cure is based on activating endogenous substances and on strengthening the immune system. The nerve connections between the inner organs and the skin effect a functional organ disturbance being able to trigger pain which can be felt on the surface of the skin. Cupping is an effective method to counteract these symptoms. Certain skin reflex zones and acupuncture points are sensitive and can be stimulated. If these skin reflex zones are treated, the relevant organ is positively influenced in its function. This effect cannot be achieved through medicaments or other pharmaceutical products.
Non-invasive cupping Non-invasive or even dry cupping is successful by the skin being oiled on the cupping places. The cupping glasses are placed on the skin and a vacuum is created by means of a suction pump. The skin is not damaged but treated until the skin and subcutaneous tissue is lightly sucked in. This suction process through the vacuum created effects an increased blood flow. The cupping glasses should remain stuck to the skin for some time. This is achieved through careful oiling.
The cupping massage, another form of non-invasive cupping, initially treats large areas of the skin with massage oil. After this the cupping glasses are slowly directed over the skin reflex zones following the line of the muscles. This method has a by far stronger effect on the blood flow than a classical massage.
Wet cupping Wet cupping serves the purpose of thinning the blood, its ability to flow is to be promoted. The existing toxins are excreted from the body with the blood, as was intended in earlier times with bloodletting. The skin is thereby initially slit, then the cupping glasses places on the skin.
