Cupping therapy Orlando can be effectively used to stimulate the movement of blood, lymph fluids and the essential Qi energy in the body. Since many types of illness, stress, and pain are caused by blockages or stagnation in the circulation of these fluids and Qi, cupping therapy often becomes an essential part of the treatment programme. For example, cupping therapy Orlando is used to treat all kinds of muscle pain, stress, and to help clear congestion after a cold or flu.

How Cupping Therapy work?

Chinese medicine believes that illness, stress, and pain can be caused by a blockage or stagnation of blood, lymph fluids and vital energy (known as Qi). So for example, back pain may be caused by bad posture which means that your Qi energy and fluids can’t flow properly through that area and begin to stagnate. Cupping is used to stimulate the movement of these fluids and Qi, to get your body back on track.

Cupping has been practiced for thousands of years and is being practiced around the world since its origins 5,000 years go in China. Usually, it is combined with Chinese Tuina massage and acupuncture as part of Chinese medicine. The cupping therapy consists of creating a vacuum in several glass cups and applying them to the skin. This causes a suction sensation which stimulates energy and blood flow and can draw out toxins and activate the lymphatic system. Cupping is used for the relief of pain, stress, detox and weight control.

Cupping therapy involves placing cups on the relevant part of the body with the aim to create a vacuum inside each cup. The vacuum causes a suction sensation which stimulates the flows of Qi and body fluids. The improved flows can drive toxins out of the body and unblock stagnation, hence immediate relief of pain and stress.
