SET OF 10 MASSAGE CUPS FOR CHINESE MASSAGE THERAPY
Cupping therapy is an ancient Chinese form of alternative medicine in which a local suction is created on the skin. Practitioners believe this mobilizes blood flow in order to promote healing. Suction is created using heat (fire) or mechanical devices (hand or electrical pumps).
In traditional Chinese medicine, cupping is a method of applying acupressure by creating a vacuum on the patient's skin to dispel stagnation - stagnant blood and lymph, thereby improving flow - to treat respiratory diseases such as the common cold, pneumonia and bronchitis.
Cupping massage is used on back, neck and shoulder.
Cupping is used to treat a broad range of medical conditions such as: blood disorders (anemia), rheumatic diseases (arthritic joint and muscular conditions), fertility and gynecological disorders, and skin problems (eczema, acne), and is claimed by proponents to help general physical and psychological well-being.
