Cupping Therapy: an ancient technique that’s becoming popular again

Cupping therapy is becoming increasingly popular, it’s not new. Cupping therapy can be traced back to ancient Chinese, Egyptian and Middle Eastern cultures. The technique is even described in one of the oldest medical textbooks in the world, the Ebers Papyrus, which means ancient Egyptians may have been using cupping therapy as early as 1,550 B.C.
During a cupping session, a practitioner places round cups directly on your skin. The cup is either first heated with fire or manually pumped to create a suction. The cups are then left on your skin for several minutes. Cupping became part of the mainstream conversation during the 2016 Summer Olympics, when swimmer Michael Phelps showed up to compete with round bruises covering his back.
“Cupping certainly isn’t new. In ancient times, it was used for lung conditions like bronchitis and pneumonia.”
“Cupping certainly isn’t new,” says Dr Izharul Hasan, post graduate ayush doctor at herbal medicine and cupping therapy clinic, karol bagh, New Delhi, who offers cupping therapy at his practice.
“In ancient times, it was used for lung conditions like bronchitis and pneumonia.”
The use of cupping has evolved, and today it’s widely used for pain relief and musculoskeletal injuries, such as strains, sprains, back injuries, and inflammation.
How does it work?
It is believed that the suction created by the cup encourages blood flow—and this increased circulation may promote healing and reduce pain.
Cupping has many purported benefits, including:
*Reducing muscle tightness
*Increasing a limited range of motion
*Increasing oxygen in local areas from increased local blood flow
*Increasing blood flow.
Whether you’re someone who’s experiencing musculoskeletal pain and tightness, an athlete who trained a little too hard or an executive who needs stress relief, cupping may optimize athletic performance, speed up recovery, stretch muscles and connective tissue, improve overall wellbeing and so much more.
What does the science say?
There has been some research that suggests cupping does have benefits when it comes to pain relief, but the studies are generally considered low quality. More studies are needed to conclusively understand the health impacts of the therapy.
For most patients, cupping is safe to try and could complement an existing treatment plan. Like all therapies, it’s important to see a professional who has been trained and licensed appropriately. And before trying any new medical program, you should consult with your doctor.
