Cupping Therapy is the application of either blood cupping or aggressive cupping techniques to prevent and treat diseases. When combined with intake of pure salt with distilled water and complemented by daily exercise, good eating habits and healthy lifestyle it is called Cupping and Pure Salt Therapy which is a most effective way of preventing and treating mild to serious degenerative diseases and maintaining good health.
Cupping Therapy gets rid of acidic toxic waste which accumulate in our bodies (blood stasis) as we grow older. Sources of toxic waste include the polluted air we breathe; toxic chemicals found in your food, water, drinks, household chemicals & toiletries; environmental waste in your neighbourhood; intoxicating drinks, narcotic drugs, junk food and smoking; waste products of normal body metabolism; products of medicinal drugs metabolism; impact of trauma and accidents on our body; and toxins from mental stress, anger, anxiety and depression.The blood stasis (stagnated or congested blood) slow down or block supply of blood via blood capillaries which deliver much needed oxygen, nutrients, water, mineral electrolyte, vitamins, enzymes, hormones and immune system cells & antibodies to your cells, tissues and organ. The blockage also prevent the removal of carbon dioxide, metabolic waste products and toxic substance which are excreted via our urine, lungs and skin. As a result your cells, tissues, and organs cannot function at its normal healthy level and become progressively weak, inefficient, and easily overcome by germs. This would cause tissue or organ to malfunction and infection to take place. Therefore you will experience symptoms of diseases such as aches and pain, numbness, fever, cough, stomach ache, constipation, diarrhoea and headaches. If left untreated further accumulation of toxic waste may lead to serious chronic diseases including hypertension, ulcers, diabetes, arthritis, alzheimer disease, migraine, heart disease, stroke and cancer
Diseases that cannot be treated by Cupping Therapy include- Congenital (present at birth) and genetic diseases like down syndrome, cerebral palsy, cleft lip, hole-in-heart, congenital dislocation of the hip.- Trauma and accidents for example broken bones and joints, open wound, torn muscles, tissue and organ damage, internal bleeding, and excessive bleeding. However Cupping Therapy can promote quicker recovery or healing of these conditions due to improved blood circulation.
Cupping can be mildly or moderately painful. The degree of pain varies from person to person and the location of cupped areas on the same body. The sensation of pricking with needle (lancet) during cupping is quite similarly to insect bites. Post cupping symptoms varies between persons which include feeling relieved after cupping, feeling dizzy/weak/tired or not much sensation.
Cupping is a safe therapy provided hygienic conditions are maintained before, during and after cupping.
