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







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。
