How Does It Help Me?

Over the years, we have used cupping to help people heal from a variety of disorders and issues, including the following:

  • Respiratory
  • Musculoskeletal
  • Neurological
  • Circulatory
  • Digestive
  • Gynecological

Cupping dissipates local stagnation, improves blood circulation, and can cause vasodilation. It can also dissipate heat, cold, and dampness while drawing qi to an area and increasing gaseous exchange in the lungs.

In plain words, we use cupping to relax the body and detoxify tissues. This can lead to many benefits for you, including healing in the areas described above. In addition, we have seen how the therapy can reduce cellulite and water retention, improve nervous system functionality, and heal scar tissue.

What Does the Process Involve?

The process is straightforward at Glanmire Chiropractic Clinic. A special cup sticks to the skin by means of suction, which is usually produced by introducing a flaming object into it. The flame burns up the oxygen and produces negative pressure within the cup, thus pulling the skin and subcutaneous tissue upwards into it.

As a result of cupping, blood is activated and drawn into the area, which increases muscle tone and occasionally means the area may bruise. The additional blood flow is helpful in both excess and deficiency conditions.
