There are two main uses of cupping: stationary and
in massage. Stationary cupping is used in
traditional Chinese medicine to clear stagnation of
blood; to facilitate the release of pathogenic
factors; and to dispel internal heat. Cups are
place on the skin and left for 5 to 15 minutes.
Four to six cups may also be applied and then
removed cyclically in a technique called flash
cupping. Both methods are commonly used for
treating lung congestion and for removing heat from
the body. The stimulation on the back, over the
lungs, activates the mucociliary escalator of the
lungs and facilitates expectoration of congested
material. The other action is to bring heat from
the lungs to the surface of the skin to be
eliminated. Stationary cupping sometimes results in
rings and circles on the back as toxins and blood
move to the surface.
Cupping used for massage is the more common form
among practitioners of Western healing arts. Before
applying the cups, the massage therapist will
administer plenty of oil on the areas to be cupped,
to facilitate smooth movement. Placement of the
cups on the area, the therapist will begin to glide
the cups over the skin. The movement will be smooth
without pressing down. Almost all areas of the body
may be worked on including the neck, shoulders,
middle and low back and sacrum. The stomach, hips
and thighs require a gentler massage cupping.
