The principal & mechanism of Cupping Therapy

 

Cupping is an ancient Chinese method use for causing local congestion. A partial vacuum is created in cups placed on the skin either by means of heat or suction. This draws up the underlying tissues. When the cup is left in place on the skin for a few minutes, blood stasis is formed and healing takes place.

 

Cupping is generally not painful. After cupping treatment, it may leave a bruise mark on the skin.  The color of the mark will indicate the condition inside your body such as purple color means heat, while white color cold.

 

Sometime it may cause one to several blisters which indicates fluid retention inside your body. The bruise or blister will disappear in 7 to 10 days. However, in some cases, it takes longer period to disappear due to poor blood circulation.

 

Cupping 拔罐的原理與臨床的意義

 

 

拔罐法是借助熱力,排除罐中空氣,造成負壓,吸著於皮膚,造成瘀血現象的方法,具有行氣、消腫、祛寒等作用。

 

拔罐的原理與臨床的意義是透過吸拔的壓力變化,達到目標部位充血量增加,進而因新陳代謝的增加,產生酸痛的緩解以及症狀的排除,至於拔罐之後是不是都會瘀青,是由患部的症狀來決定是否有瘀青的現象。

 

一般來說,症狀越嚴重的部位,也就是中醫所謂氣血瘀滯越嚴重的位置,拔出來的顏色就會越黑, 而神經痛一般會合併氣血瘀滯的現象。例如坐骨神經痛的患者,拔完罐後常見下背部都是黑青的顏色。
