Cupping is a traditional Chinese medicine treatment methods, the principle is the use of mechanical or heating means to expel the air tank, using its negative pressure, adsorption skin, resulting in local small subcutaneous hematoma, which can stimulate the small wound the body's own functions (such as the nervous system, endocrine system, etc.), so as to achieve therapeutic effects, drug stores, shopping malls inside the cupping products is also increasing.
Identified Cupping: little difference between the old and new products
Cupping also known as "cupping therapy", "pull the tube" or "suction tube." Cupping for a variety of products on the market, Beijing University of Chinese Medicine Acupuncture College Associate Professor Bai Xinghua argue that the traditional cupping cupping and modern devices not much difference between the functions, in particular, the material difference in the efficacy for cupping , the impact is not very great. But one thing we should all be aware that if they are caused by cold factors, such as rheumatism, the old cold legs, then we need to use the traditional better ignition of the fire can result.
Cupping: understand the pain due to re-start with
For patients in their own homes using the cupping device, white scholars believe that the use of pain before we must find out the reasons, if some of the pain caused by chronic diseases, such as Yao Ji strain or sprain, the patient is a clear cause and have doctor's orders the case can be its own use, so that is also conducive to the treatment. However, because the pain is sometimes very complicated, so Professor Bai people do not advocate the use of cupping, when the cause is not clear from my clinic, because it is not symptomatic of the cupping although unlikely to cause any harm, but it will be adversely affected by illness, may be lead to serious consequences. Also damaged skin, easy bleeding or suffering from diseases (such as hemophilia, thrombocytopenia, purpura, etc.) were not suitable for the use of cupping therapy.
So what should we do the proper use of cupping device? Professor Bai's proposal is, if you need cupping part of it is so large muscles on the back, it is best to use slightly larger pot, in the context of the human body can withstand, suction large effect is good. In the cupping means, whether large tank can be used brute force to pull small can not be the correct approach is to use a finger to the edge of the skin under the pressure tank until the air gently into the post-win. Cupping time to 10 to 15 minutes, preferably up to no more than 30 minutes. Cupping the same parts of the interval depends on the skin to restore the case may be, generally two or three days can be.
Cupping, when we must pay attention not to the edge of Guankou Heat to prevent burns, pregnant women can not be cupping the waist and abdomen, heart area, hair parts, suffering from skin disease places unfit for use.
With cupping: Three Mistakes to understand that
Cupping is the treatment of some diseases, there was indeed a lot of convenience, but in everyday use, there are a lot of people are still right there are some cupping erroneous understanding. To this end, White, professor of the people's understanding and use of cupping therapy on three errors:
First, the cupping although a variety of pain have some therapeutic effect, but as a Chinese medicine-assisted treatment is not a cure-all for. Product Description For the cupping on the detail, without going through medical clinical trials, and could not confirm its effectiveness, the patient should be a rational treatment of this issue.
Second, given the market some magnetic features cupping devices, white professor said, the body's own with a very weak magnetic field, magnetic strong magnet attached to the tank, would interfere with the body's own magnetic field. If you use too much magnetic products, to a certain degree of sense that is doing harm than good. In his view, the "magnetic" propaganda and sought after is more like a "fashion", because in traditional Chinese medicine theory of the "magnetic" feature only sporadic records, has not really form a system.
Third, some places non-medical organizations such as the bath center will also provide cupping, scraping and other services, while convenient, but suggested that better not go, because some places there is no strict disinfection, may cause cross-infection.
