Cupping Therapy in Chennai

Cupping is a type of alternative therapy that originated in ancient China. Our cupping expert starts by placing cups on the skin to create suction. This suction facilitates healing with blood flow. Dr. Yusuf’s studies show that cupping facilitates the flow of “qi” in the body. Qi is a Chinese word meaning life force. When looking for a place to get your first cupping treatment in Chennai, make sure that the experts always respect and follow the deep tradition involved. To give this tradition a little bit of background it started with a famous Taoist alchemist and herbalist, Ge Hong. He is reportedly the first person to have practiced cupping. The amazing this is the time when this happened – A.D. 281 to 341.

All around the globe, many Taoists believe that cupping helps balance yin and yang, or the negative and positive, within the body. At Yaa Healthcare we believe that the body’s resistance to pathogens as well as its ability to increase blood flow and reduce pain can be boosted by restoring the balance between these two extremes, and this is why we are considered one of the best places to get a cupping therapy in Chennai.

Cupping definitely increases blood circulation to the area where the cups are placed. This relieves muscle tension, which can improve overall blood flow and promote cell repair. Through cell repair, new connective tissues are formed and this creates new blood vessels in the tissue.

What are the different types of cupping?

Cupping was originally performed using animal horns. Later, the “cups” were made from bamboo and then ceramic. The suction was primarily created through the use of heat. The cups were originally heated with fire and then applied to the skin. As they cooled, the cups drew the skin inside. In our facility, we perform modern cupping is using glass cups that are rounded like balls and open on one end.

There are two main categories of cupping performed at Yaa Healthcare:

Dry cupping is a suction-only method.The cup is set in place for a set time, usually between 5 and 10 minutes.

Wet cupping | Hijama may involve both suction and controlled medicinal bleeding.

Your practitioner, your medical condition, and your preferences will help determine what method is used.

What should I expect during a cupping treatment?

During a cupping treatment, a cup is first placed on the skin. Then it is heated or suctioned onto the skin. Often times we heat the cup with fire using alcohol, herbs, or paper that’s placed directly into it. Once the fire source is removed, the heated cup is placed with the open side directly on your skin. When our expert places the hot cup is placed on your skin, the air inside the cup cools and creates a vacuum that draws the skin and muscle upward into the cup. Your skin turns red as the blood vessels respond to the change in pressure.

We know that in wet cupping, cups are usually only in place for a few minutes before the practitioner removes the cup and makes a small incision to draw blood. Our expert practitioner then removes the cups. He then covers the previously cupped areas with ointment and bandages to prevent infection. All mild bruising or other marks usually go away within 10 days of the session.

Performing this along with acupuncture treatments can yield you the best results.

What conditions can cupping treat?

Cupping has been used to treat a wide variety of conditions. It may be particularly effective at easing conditions that create muscle aches and pains. Since the cups can also be applied to major acupressure points, the practice is possibly effective at treating digestive issues, skin issues, and other conditions commonly treated with acupressure.
