Over the years, traditional Chinese medicine has brought forth an array of holistic treatments that continue to endure. From acupuncture treatment to tui na manipulative therapy, these methods are still sought out by modern pain sufferers. Recently more and more Californians have turned to cupping therapy, another traditional Chinese treatment option.
Cupping creates a vacuum on the client's skin that will dispel stagnant blood and lymph tissue, thereby improving qi flow. At Tang Acupuncture Clinic, we place jars on the skin to pull skin, tissue, and muscle upward, enhancing circulation in the process. Our cupping treatments can also be used to relieve pain and remove the toxins that lie in the tissue throughout your body.
This form of therapy is often used to treat respiratory diseases such as the common cold, pneumonia, and bronchitis. Cupping may also be administered on the back, neck, or shoulders to ease tension throughout these areas. In other instances, cupping therapy has been reported to promote relaxation and eliminate the symptoms of anxiety and depression.
