“Where there’s stagnation, there will be pain. Remove the stagnation, and you remove the pain.”
Cupping is a technique that uses small glass cups as suction devices that are placed on the skin to disperse and break up stagnation and congestion by drawing congested blood, tension, and energy to the surface.
Pain results from the congestion, stagnation, and blockage of Qi, or vital energy, vital fluids, lymph, phlegm, and blood. If pain is the essence of disease, then suffering is a result of obstructed or irregular flow in the body. Chinese cupping is a method of breaking up the blockage to restore the body’s natural flow of energy.
