Cupping is another type of treatment. This is a method of stimulating Acupuncture points by applying suction through a metal, wood or glass jar, in which a partial vacuum has been created. This technique produces blood congestion at the site, and therefore stimulates it. Cupping is used for low backache, sprains, soft tissue injuries, and helping relieve fluid from the lungs in chronic bronchitis or asthma.
It is also very helpful as a form of deep tissue massage, when cups are applied to a painful area of the body, and using a sliding cupping technique, deep muscle fibres are stimulated and tension relieved.
