April Bui Acupuncture
Cupping is an age-old method used in Chinese medicine treatment to facilitate energy (qi) flow, enhance blood circulation, disperse blood, qi, and other forms of blockages, extract excess wind, heat, cold or toxicities out of the body by creating a strong suction, pulling effect when a cup makes contact with the body. With cupping one feels a strong pressure over a large area of the body in contrast to the sharp, prickly sensation of the acupuncture needle to a point in the body. Cupping is generally not painful, in fact it can feel like a wonderful deep massage.
Please be advised that this information is intended for educational purpose only. Cupping should be performed only by a trained professional.
