How a Cupping Set Can Heal Your Patient’s Conditions

Many of the acupuncturists that have been in practice for a long time are probably using the ancient treatment of cupping in their practices. If you are new to the field of acupuncture, this ancient Chinese treatment is one of the oldest forms of alternative medicine, as well as known for treating a wide variety of conditions. At Go Acupuncture, we offer many different types of these tools so you can find the perfect cupping set for your practice. But what exactly does cupping entail?

What is Cupping?

Cupping, as a type of therapy, comes in many different forms. Traditionally, many acupuncturists have the glass cupping set, which is the most common form.  However, there are plastic, bamboo, or earthenware cups as well. Regardless of what kind of material the cup is made from, the cupping process comes in two forms: dry and wet cupping. Dry cupping involves the suction portion of the therapy only, while the wet cupping uses suction and medicinal bleeding that is controlled by the doctor.

The Process of Using a Cupping Set

During both wet and dry cupping, the cupping set has something in it, whether it is paper or alcohol,  which is set on fire before the therapy. This creates heat within the cup. When the fire goes out, the warm cup is placed on your patient’s skin. This creates a vacuuming affect on their skin which does many things for their body, including drawing harmful toxins from the body, relaxing the muscles, and increases circulation. The cups are only left on the skin for around 10 minutes.

The Way to a Happy, Successful, Pain-Free Life

Many practitioners have said that by purchasing a cupping set for their practice they were able to treat such disorders as anxiety, arthritis, hypertension, asthma, and eczema. With the wide variety of conditions they were able to help treat, you can only imagine how their clientele expanded! Purchasing a cupping set can help your practice grow, as well as help heal your patients in different ways so they can lead successful and happy lives.
