One of the earliest documentations of cupping can be found in the work titled A Handbook of Prescriptions for Emergencies, which was written by a Taoist herbalist by the name of Ge Hong and dates back to 300 AD. An even earlier Chinese documentation, three thousand years old, recommended cupping for the treatment of pulmonary tuberculosis.
The Ebers Papyrus, written c. 1550 BC one of the oldest medical textbooks in the Western world, describes the Egyptians' use of cupping, while mentioning similar practices employed by Saharan peoples.
In ancient Greece, Hippocrates (c. 400 BC) used cupping for internal disease and structural problems. In both Eastern and Western cultures, Cupping therapy supporters believe that cupping removes harmful substances and toxins from the body to promote healing.
Tracy will take the oxygen out of a glass cup, then Tracy will put the cup upside down on your skin.
As the air inside the cup cools, it creates a vacuum. This causes your skin to rise and redden as your blood vessels expand. The cup is generally left in place from 1 seconds up to 20 minutes, or it can be slide along the skin for a massage-like effect.
A more modern version of cupping uses a rubber pump to create the vacuum inside cup a plastic cup.
Wet cupping creates a mild suction by leaving a cup in place for about 3 minutes. Tracy then removes the cup and uses a small lancet or dermal hamer to make light, tiny cuts on your skin, then Tracy will place the cup on top of the skin to draw out a small quantity of blood.
