On-Point Acupuncture offers a full list of drug free treatments of muscle and acute pain, emotional issues, digestive disorders, headaches, and more.

For some, cupping therapy might be a foreign concept. Others might recognize it simply as “that thing that leaves the peculiar circles on people’s backs,” but not properly grasp what it’s used for. If you find yourself in either of these camps but want to know more, you’re in the right place. These helpful facts should shine a light on what cupping is, how it’s done, what it’s used for, and hopefully offer a sense if it’s a good fit for you.

What Is Cupping?

Cupping might sound new but it’s actually a pretty old practice originating in ancient cultures. Usually administered by a licensed acupuncturist, cupping is a form of therapy where special cups are heated and then applied to the skin in a manner which creates suction (known as fire cupping). Much of the time the cups are placed on a person’s back but can go other places around the body as well. Cupping is used for several health issues as well as a form of massage.

Cupping Is Useful For A Broad Spectrum Of Conditions

For years the technique known as cupping has been implemented to handle a wide variety of issues, from situations as critical as a poisonous snake bite to something as benign as a common cold. These days cupping is most commonly used to treat body and muscle pains, headaches, flu symptoms, inflammation, and improving circulation.

Are Those Bruises?

No. The dark marks left after cupping therapy represent stagnation in that particular area of the body. Bruises by definition are the result of trauma or impact to the body, that is not what cupping is. If a person has excessive toxins or stagnation they are likely to have darker marks after cupping. These fade within just a few days. The more often a person receives cupping the less the marks will show with each additional treatment.
