Body Cupping For Tissue Repair And Pain Management CandyLipz May 4, 2014 Lip Plumper Trivia By CandyLipz.com If you are not familiar with ‘Cupping ‘, cupping is a traditional Chinese medicinal therapeutic healing method dating back at least 3,500 years. From the ancient era up to the mid 1800s, cupping has been passed down through generations of families as part of their cultural heritage. According to historical data, cupping therapy permeated all 4 continents including Africa, Eurasia (Europe and Asia), North America and South America. Devotees of cupping were found commonly in Egypt, Greece, Arab, Iran, the Muslim countries, Russia, Finland, Poland, Scandinavia, Turkey, Italy, France, and the all Asian countries. After the 1900s, with the advancement of modern scientific research by the new medical establishment, cupping therapy practices and claims were discredited. From then on, for many countries around the world, generations of people have forgotten all about cupping- but China kept its tradition going and today Chinese cupping therapy is an official therapeutic practice found throughout its hospitals. Guess what? Cupping is finally making a comeback worldwide and in the USA. Between 1950 and the present, nearly 5,000 citations were written on the topic of cupping and roughly 550 clinical studies were completed. There is still a lot of scientific research to be done on cupping therapy, its mechanisms, and the efficacy of the method for the treatment of diseases. However, we do have strong clinical evidence that cupping alleviates pain from carpal tunnel syndrome, back pain, muscle pain, neck pain, joint pain, and fibromyalgia. A recent clinical study on knee osteoarthritis published on December 2013 in the Journal of Advanced Pharmaceutical Technology and Research proved that cupping for 15 minutes has pain-killer and anti-inflammatory effects. When cupping was put to the test against acetaminophen (such as Tylenol), cupping was shown to be as effective for relieving knee osteoarthritis pain, stiffness, edema, and movement as taking 650 mg of oral acetaminophen (Tylenol) twice daily. Some taking acetaminophen experienced upper gastrointestinal problems.
