Cupping Therapy in Yarraville

Cupping Therapy in Melbourne

Are you looking for a natural treatment that can release tension, improve circulation and boost the body’s natural healing processes? At Pivotal Chinese Medicine, we offer cupping therapy in Melbourne that involves placing glass suction cups onto the skin and creating a vacuum. The suction draws the skin and underlying tissues into the cup, enabling and accelerating the flow of qi (energy) throughout the body.

Our skilled practitioners use this traditional method to relieve pain, inflammation and a variety of musculoskeletal disorders. We may also employ this alternative treatment to induce relaxation, reduce stress and anxiety, and increase overall wellbeing. An alternative treatment, cupping Chinese medicine is generally safe with only mild side effects such as redness, bruising and discomfort that last no longer than a few days. You can rely on us to carry out the treatment correctly and safely.

What is Gliding Cupping?

Gliding cupping therapy in Melbourne is a variant of cupping. Instead of leaving the cups in one place, gliding cupping involves moving them over the body, usually along energy and meridian channels or acupressure points. Once the cup is in place, the practitioner moves it in a circular or linear motion over the targeted area. As the cup glides over the skin, it gently lifts and stretches the underlying tissue, promoting blood flow, lymphatic drainage and the release of fascial adhesions.

Gliding cupping can be particularly beneficial for musculoskeletal issues such as back pain, neck pain and sciatica. It may also alleviate respiratory problems, digestive issues and menstrual issues. It’s generally safe and non-invasive, although it may leave circular marks on the skin that can last for a few days. Overall, gliding cupping is a gentle yet effective way to bring injuries and various other maladjustments into balance, promoting healing and wellness in the body.

On What Areas of the Body Can Cupping Be Used?

Typically, cupping is applied not only on meridian points but also on areas of the body where you feel pain or discomfort. The rationale behind using cupping Chinese medicine on meridian points is that these parts of the body can become obstructed and stagnant, causing a disruption in the body’s energy flow. Such stagnation may lead to various conditions such as musculoskeletal problems, injury or illness. The application of cupping can unblock the meridians, allowing the release of old energy and facilitating the flow of new energy through the body. This traditional method is most effective on the back due to its broad and flat surface, enhancing overall wellness and rejuvenation.
