This technique has been a part of Chinese Medicine for over 2,500 years. It relieves aches and pains, improves circulation, and also helps with respiratory and digestive issues. We simply place a special “cup” onto specific points of your body, and then use suction to draw your skin up into the cup. It does not hurt — it simply draws fresh blood to that area of your body, which facilitates the cleansing and strengthening of your Qi (life energy). The end result is a greater overall sense of health and well-being.
Is a skin scraping technique to release acute conditions. It is one of the most effective exterior or surface releasing techniques in TCM, and its effect is similar to the cupping technique. It has the same effect of sweating to release a pathogen caused by an external condition such as cold, wind, dryness, dampness or heat. It is applied in acute conditions to speed up recuperation of health. It prevents the pathogens to go deeply into the body causing injury to the organs and a more serious condition. It is also effective to move the Qi and the blood to relieve pain.
