As practiced by 1000 Folded Cranes, cupping therapy is a painless and non-invasive procedure. In fact, most patients would call it an enjoyable, almost spa-like experience and one of their favorite ways to end their sessions. Glass cups are placed on the front or the back of the torso, while Dr. Fred Ragsdale, L.Ac., employs a technique of using oil-based massage liniments that allow the jars to slide across areas of tension and pain. Cupping is remarkably effective for relaxing muscles and restoring proper circulation.
It is an essential tool for most muscular-skeletal conditions, pain, colds and flu symptoms and all detox/weight loss. It can help remove toxins from the body and stimulate the flow of fresh blood, lymph, and Qi to the affected area and throughout the body.
Cupping therapy is not solely a tradition of Chinese medicine, as it was also recommended by Hippocrates, the man whom many consider to be the “Father of Modern Medicine,” in his guide to clinical treatment.
