Benefits of Cupping

Cupping is another gem that came to us by way of traditional medicine. Modern research has documented its effectiveness in decreasing pain and other benefits. Users report increased muscle recovery, improvements in pain and flexibility, and increased relaxation and relief among the benefits.

When you come to Four Seasons Acupuncture of Winter Park you can enjoy cupping by itself or with acupuncture or one of our other holistic services. As part of your appointment, your practitioner will apply heat in a cup before placing it on the body. The heat will create a vacuum effect that draws the skin up into the cup. This in turn helps the body release and drain toxins through the lymphatic system. Traditional Chinese Medicine recognizes congestion and stagnation as a source of pain, so when blockages are broken up and flow is restored, the patient experiences relief.

Major benefits of cupping include:

  • Reduced Inflammation

  • Decreased Pain

  • Relaxation

  • Improved Circulation

  • Decreased Physical Tension

  • Enhanced Emotional State

Though often used for aches and pains, cupping has also helped people with respiratory and digestive issues including bronchitis, asthma, colds, stomach aches, vomiting, diarrhea, and constipation.
