Cupping is one of well known methods to remove stasis and make circulation better. The difference from massage is that it uses negative pressure to help improve health issues.
Cupping makes mark on the body for around 1 weeks depending on conditions.
However, cupping should be applied with cautious. It can make blister on the body and might be infected. So please ask your practitioner about the cupping.
Cupping has 3 different methods
In Australia, dry cupping is widely applicable. It can apply for 10 minutes to 15 minutes generally, and can be extended longer.
In our clinic, we do not provide cupping only treatment. We provide cupping with acupuncture in case where it is needed. Not all cupping is good, therefore cupping is also used cautiously depending on the body structure.
