Cupping Therapy 

Brisbane Acupuncture Clinic

Cupping is a physical method involving the placement of glass cups on the skin, often used in conjunction with acupuncture. Traditionally, cupping has been used for releasing stiff muscles, headache relief, and cold/flu relief, and is very safe when performed by an experienced practitioner.  A vacuum is created within the cup, which is then placed on the skin, gently drawing in to increase circulation to the area (Aboushanab & Alsanad, 2018). At Lang Acupuncture Jindalee cupping clinic, we generally use massage oil on the area first and then apply the glass cups one by one, checking in with you all the time to ensure you are comfortable. Cupping is thought to promote healing & immune processes by helping to draw blood to the local area in focus (Aboushanab & Alsanad, 2018)! One thing to note is that cupping may leave a temporarily coloured mark on the skin – depending on the amount of release in that area, these marks may remain for a couple of hours to up to two weeks. The marks are painless, but may be interesting to others to see. At Lang Acupuncture and Holistic Health Brisbane, we love cupping and are experienced in its applications.
