What is Cupping?

Traditional cupping is a practice that improves circulation and rejuvenates the body, as well as relieving pain, swelling, and digestive or respiratory disorders. We simply apply a silicon or glass cup onto specific points on the body, mostly focusing on the back. The cups are left on the body for a certain amount of time. During this time, the cups will “suck out” all the toxins from the body towards the surface of the skin. At the same time, patients will experience total relaxation from the detoxifying effect. Cupping draws fresh Qi and blood to the area of focus, which strengthens the vital energy, facilitates the cleansing of the body and oxygenates the tissues and muscles.

What to expect from your first cupping treatment. First, one of our licensed team members will determine which cupping procedure is best for you: wet or dry. Wet cupping involves the placement of a vacuumed cup on specific points of your body. The result of this treatment will be the appearance of bruises on the skin, as the cupping vacuum forces toxins and impurities to the skin’s surface. Often, especially if an illness or health condition is present, small blisters will also appear. Your doctor will then use a sterile needle or small scalpel to gently prick the skin and the blisters. This will allow the bad blood and impurities to flow out. Another cup will then be placed on the area, suctioning the toxins from the bloodstream.

Yi Cupping (易罐)
Located on Broadway, Vancouver, BC.

Developed around the early 2000’s by one of Cody’s mentors, Dr. Zhong Shi Yuan, who is a Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner that specializes in spinal disorders in the city of Guangzhou, China. The cups used in this style are colourful silicon cups and the treatment is almost the same as for traditional cupping therapy. In a similar manner, Yi Cupping increases range of movement (ROM) of the joints, improves circulation in the joints, relieves adhesion, helps to dissipate scar tissue and corrects postural issues such as upper crossed syndrome, lower crossed syndrome, frozen shoulder and so on.

Facial cupping uses smaller and softer to gently lift the skin away from the face increasing blood circulation, relieving muscle tension, and promoting cell regeneration. Facial cupping is a very regular practice in Traditional Chinese Medicine used for 100s of years. It is believed to improve the flow of “qi” or your life force. The benefits of facial cupping include brighter complexion, minimized fine lines and wrinkles, decreased puffiness, tonned facial muscles, and balanced oil production.
