This ancient therapy seems to be getting more popular lately seeing celebrities with blue cupping marks. Cups are used on the areas that are tight or painful as the vacuum suction gets created to increase blood flow, speed the recovery of injuries or inflammation process, and increase the oxygen levels in the tissues. Redness that is evoked by suction shows stimulation of blood flow necessary for natural healing process.
Cupping can be beneficial with symptoms such as arthritis, back pain, neck pain, knee pain, shoulder pain, breathing problems ( such as asthma), carpal tunnel syndrome, IBS, headaches, migraines, high blood pressure etc.
First cupping session usually leaves marks on the skin surface that last up to 10 days, but they are not painful.
Moxa is dried medicinal herb called mugworth ( lat.Artemisia vulgaris), used as a form of heat therapy during acupuncture session to increase effectiveness of the treatment.
