Cupping therapy has been recorded in Ancient Greek (400BC) and Ancient Chinese medicine (1000BC) to effectively reduce the symptoms associated with cold, flu, bronchitis and respiratory illness. It also has a good physiological effect that helps to reduce musculoskeletal pain
There are different forms of cupping therapy but the basic principle is that acupressure is applied on specific acupuncture points by placing a vacuum of pressure through a glass container.
Fire cupping is a type of deep tissue massage that promotes stress relief and relaxation. As a medicinal therapy it has been used to treat a variety of diseases such as chronic bronchitis, asthma, colds, skin inflammation, digestive disorders, musculoskeletal pain, some gynaecological disorders, gastro-intestinal disorders, lung diseases, and paralysis
Suction & Fire cupping are the most traditional methods in modern day treatment programmes. The glass cup is heated before the flame is extinguished and the cup is quickly placed on the acupuncture point selected by the practitioner
The sensation experienced by the patient is usually warming and relaxing.
Before patients undergo this treatment it is important to acknowledge that the marks left by the glass cups can, at times, last for up to a week
