Scottsdale Chinese Cupping Therapy

Cupping therapy is a fascinating medical technique both in that there is evidence of its practice dating back as far as 3,000 B.C. and in that cupping therapy was practiced so widely in so many different cultures. Indeed cupping therapy was part of Western medicine until the late 19th century and is seeing a revival again in the Western medical tradition today.[custom_frame_left shadow=”on”]Female Receiving Acupuncture Cupping Treatment[/custom_frame_left] 

Cupping Therapy History

We know that the Egyptians began using cupping 5,000 years ago, the Chinese 4,000 years ago, and that the great Greek doctor Hippocrates himself was using cupping 2,500 years ago. In much of Eastern Europe and Asia, the practice never fell out of favor in the medical community. Elsewhere, such as our lovely clinic in Scottsdale, Arizona cupping therapy has been revived as a form of alternative medicine.

What Are The Benefits of Cup Therapy?

Cupping therapy works by creating a partial vacuum under the cup forming what is essentially an airtight seal. The cup sucks to the skin pulling in soft tissue. This also has the effect of drawing blood to the area under suction. Cupping therapy can be a great treatment for back, neck, shoulder and other musculoskeletal conditions. In many parts of Asia, it is believed that cupping therapy can improve the flow of chi and help fight respiratory diseases. Click here to learn more about the benefits of cupping therapy.
