What is Cupping Therapy?
Cupping is a form of Chinese Medicine in Williamsburg, NY and together cupping and acupuncture has been around for thousands of years. Cupping procedure uses cup suction (made of glass or bian stone), the cupping purpose is to promote healing. Cupping generally works by creating suction on an area of skin or specific cupping point.
There are different types of cupping therapy: fire cupping, dry cupping, blood (wet Cupping), detox treatment, trigger points, abdominal cupping, myofascial decompression, orthopedic cupping, bio- magnetic cupping, myofascial decompression, massage cupping.
At Pulse Acupuncture, Williamsburg, New York we also use Bian Stones for fire cupping, a practice that complements “Esoteric Acupuncture” well. Precious and rare in nature, the Bian Stones are found in the mountains of northern China. The Bian Stones deliver special far-infrared rays, trace minerals that are beneficial to healing. The Bian Stones used at Pulse Acupuncture are individually picked and manually manufactured for medical cupping therapy. The Bian stone cups are believed to work better than the regular glass cupping since it releases trace minerals when heated up by fire.

The suction can be light to heavy. Variety of movements will produce stimulating (toning) or sedating (draining) effects depending on the client’s condition. For manual vacuum cups as cupping medical equipment, Marina Doktorman, L.Ac. utilizes a hand pump. Manual cups range from plastic, silicone, rubber, cups with magnets and glass cups with rubber bulbs. A cup is placed at the area and a hand pump is employed to create a vacuum to produce a suction effect similar to fire cupping. The suction promotes lymphatic circulation, relaxes muscles, moves stagnation, draws toxins and pathogens out of the body.

Wet (bleeding) Cupping
Wet cupping is practiced through application of sterilized single-use lancets to puncture skin and plastic single-use cups are applied to promote stagnant blood to drain into the cup. The bleeding method is the most effective as specific areas on the back are designated to treat various painful symptoms where other therapies have failed. The most effective method of wet cupping is generally used for treatment of arthritis and knee pain. Wet cupping removes inflammation from joints, energizes the body, increases metabolism, helps in asthma, blood circulation, blood pressure, removes toxins and pathogens.
