Chinese medicine

Cupping is an ancient therapeutic technique that has its roots in several traditional healing systems, including traditional Chinese medicine, Arabic medicine and traditional medicine in many other cultures. This treatment uses cups, usually made of glass, plastic or bamboo, to create a vacuum on the patient's skin. The purpose of cupping is to stimulate blood flow, reduce muscle tension and stimulate the healing process.

Cupping involves sucking out the air in the cup which creates a vacuum, thereby pulling the skin and underlying tissue up into the cup.

Cupping Chinese medicine at Bodyland in Rotterdam

At Bodyland we usually perform moving cupping, but cold/dry cupping can also be applied.

During a moving cupping session, the therapist can place the cups on different parts of the body, depending on the person's complaints and goals. The movement of the cups can vary in intensity and speed depending on the desired effects. After the treatment, temporary red or purple spots may appear on the skin, which is a normal reaction and indicates the improvement of blood circulation.

Benefits of Moving Cupping:

  • Promotion of Blood Circulation:

    The vacuum effect of the cups stimulates blood circulation, which can help improve oxygen supply to the treated areas.
  • Relaxation of Muscles and Tissues:

    Moving cupping can reduce muscle tension and increase connective tissue flexibility, making it an effective treatment for people with muscle-related complaints.
  • Detoxification:

    It is also said that moving cupping can help detoxify the body by stimulating the circulation of lymph fluid.
  • Pain relief:

    This therapy can provide relief for sore and tense muscles, and is sometimes used as part of treatment for conditions such as back pain.
  • Stimulation of Energy Paths:

    In traditional Chinese medicine, cupping is believed to promote the flow of life energy, known as "qi", and remove blockages in the energy pathways.
