Cupping therapy is a form of alternative medicine in which a local suction is created on the skin.Rather than applying pressure to muscles, the suction uses pressure to pull skin, tissue and muscles upward. Cupping is often combined with acupuncture into one treatment, but it could also be used alone.

According to traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), cupping is a method of creating a vacuum on the patient’s skin to dispel stagnation (stagnant blood and lymph), thereby improving qi flow, in order to treat respiratory diseases such as the common cold, pneumonia and bronchitis. Cupping is a unique traditional Chinese medical therapy, focused on internal pain and organs diseases, and it often working as a auxiliary to other methods (acupuncture and osteopathy). Cupping also can used on back, neck, shoulder and other musculoskeletal conditions. Its advocates claim it has other applications as well. Cupping is not advised, in TCM, over skin ulcers or to the abdominal or sacral regions of pregnant women. Cupping is a simple and curative method for muscles and organs pain due to its imprecise position require on body.

 

History of Cupping:

For over 3,000 years, the practice has been typically performed unsupervised, by individuals without any medical background. Iranian traditional medicine uses wet-cupping practices, with the belief that cupping with scarification may eliminate scar tissue, and cupping without scarification would cleanse the body through the organs. Individuals with a profound interest in the practice are typically very religious and seek “purification.”

There is reason to believe the practice dates from as early as 3000 BC. The Ebers Papyrus, written c. 1550 BC and one of the oldest medical textbooks in the Western world, describes the Egyptians‘ use of cupping, while mentioning similar practices employed by Saharan peoples. In ancient GreeceHippocrates (c. 400 BC) used cupping for internal disease and structural problems. The method was highly recommended by Muhammad and hence well-practiced by Muslim scientists who elaborated and developed the method further. Consecutively, this method in its multiple forms spread into medicine throughout Asian and European civilizations. In China, the earliest use of cupping that is recorded is from the famous Taoist alchemist and herbalist, Ge Hong (281–341 A.D.).Cupping was also mentioned in Maimonides’ book on health and was used within the Eastern European Jewish community.

There is a description of cupping in George Orwell‘s essay “How the Poor Die“, where he was surprised to find it practiced in a Paris hospital.
