Revitalize Your Health with Treloar Physiotherapy Clinic

Cupping is one of the oldest methods of Traditional Chinese Medicine. This technique uses specialized glass cups that create a vacuum effect when placed on your skin. The negative pressure of the suction helps stimulate the flow of blood and oxygen to muscles, balances and regulates the flow of energy (Qi), reduces inflammation and allows for the removal of waste build-up in the tissues. Depending on the condition being treated, the cups will be left in place for 5 to 10 minutes. The cups can be either moved in a massage-like fashion by an acupuncturist or remain stationary.

*Traditional Chinese Cupping is offered at our Kerrisdale location only

Benefits of Traditional Chinese Cupping

  • Reduction in pain
  • Promote relaxation
  • Help treat respiratory issues and colds
  • Improve digestion
  • Improve blood circulation

The most common misunderstanding concerning cupping is the misinterpretation of the marks that sometimes result. These marks are not bruises. There is no compression or impact trauma in correctly performed cupping. As the skin under the cup is drawn up, the blood vessels at the surface of the skin expand. The degree of colouring is used as a diagnostic tool by acupuncturists. The marks will disappear within 3-10 days after treatment.

Chinese Cupping Vancouver FAQs

Absolutely. Chinese Cupping Therapy is a revered technique within Traditional Chinese Medicine, known for its versatility and effectiveness in treating a wide array of conditions. Beyond its ability to reduce pain and promote relaxation, cupping is particularly beneficial for addressing respiratory issues, managing high blood pressure, alleviating cold symptoms, and enhancing digestive health. Its method of loosening connective tissues without the need for invasive procedures makes it a safe choice for many seeking relief and improved well-being.

Chinese Cupping works on several levels to promote healing and balance within the body. Similar to the principles of acupuncture, cupping focuses on the stimulation of blood and oxygen flow to the muscles, which is crucial for healing and recovery. By regulating the flow of Qi (energy), increasing circulation, and facilitating the removal of toxins and waste from the tissues, cupping helps to reduce inflammation, boost recovery, and enhance overall health.

The frequency of Chinese Cupping sessions can vary depending on the individual’s condition and goals. For general wellness and maintenance, or to address specific health concerns, it’s typically recommended to undergo cupping once a week for 4-6 weeks. This allows the body adequate time to respond to the therapy and facilitates a cumulative effect, where each session builds upon the last to promote healing and balance.
