Bellabaci Cupping Massage
Cupping therapy has been practiced by the Chinese for at least three thousand years along with Tui Na massage, acupuncture and herbs, cupping forms part of the traditional body work or physiotherapy system of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The cups are applied to pressure points to relieve stagnation of Qi and blood, both locally and organ(s) activated by that point.
In the west the ancient Egyptians passes the art of cupping on to the ancient Greeks, Herodotus, a famous Greek historian and physician, wrote:
“Scarification with Cupping possesses the power of evacuating offending matter from the head; of diminishing pain of the same part; of lessening inflammation; of restoring the appetite; of strengthening a weak stomach; of removing vertigo and a tendency to faint; of drawing deep-seated offending matter towards the surface; of drying up fluxions; checking haemorrhages; promoting menstrual evacuations; arresting the tendency to putrefaction in fevers; allaying rigors; accelerating and moderating the crisis of diseases; removing a propensity to somnolence; conciliating natural repose; removing heaviness. These, and many analogous maladies, are relieved by the judicious application of the Cucurbits (Cups), dry or bloody.”
Cupping remained an important part of medicine and therapy in the west until early 20th century. After falling in favour with medicine in the modern era, cupping therapy is enjoying resurgence in popularity, promoted by acupuncturists and other holistic healthcare practitioners, one of the secrets of cupping’s perennial popularity if it’s great ability to promote a state of deep pleasure and profound relaxation.
