Treatment by Cupping therapy

Cupping Therapy

This therapy is part of a major branch of medicine known as ‘regimenal therapy,’ taught in Unani medicine. Persistent non-specific low back pain is one of the most frequently experienced types of back pain around the world. Wet-cupping is a common intervention for various pain conditions. Cupping is a technique in which glass cups are heated from the inside with fire to create a vacuum and then placed on the afflicted area of the body. The cup's suction pulls at the skin and is said to "suck out" the body's toxins. Sound uncomfortable? If done correctly, the practice can actually relieve much of the body's discomfort caused by the congestion of blood, energy or mucus, as well as swelling or pain.

Treatment for back pain by cupping therapy
Cupping is a very effective and safe treatment for back pain. Cupping is able to loosen stiff muscles, unblock pinched nerves, and unbind Myofascial adhesions. A small fire in fire cupping is inserted into a glass cup which creates a vacuum and small pinches in wet cupping and cups are placed onto the patient's back, shoulders, hips or legs. The cup instantly pulls on the muscles and tissues up into the cup. This suction draws the blood to the surface and helps to relax tight and bound muscle tissue.
Cupping will tend to leave a circular bruise which should last about 3 to 5 days. Cupping is not painful. It feels like a a really good deep tissue massage, unwinding deep knots in your musculature. When cupping is applied to the upper back and shoulders at the start of a chest cold, it can help draw out the pathogens and tonify immune system, greatly reducing chances of getting an even worse cold or flu.

Treatment Hypertension by cupping therapy
Cupping Therapy refers to the therapeutic method of applying partial vacuum cups onto certain parts of the patient's body. In Unani practice, this method is also used in the treatment of hypertension. Cupping therapy treats hypertension by regulating the whole body, rather than by simply lowering the blood pressure. Medical studies suggest that high blood pressure is a result of the feedback regulation which takes place when the blood supplies to some important organs, such as the heart, brain and kidney, are not in balance. This regulation is a compensatory reaction of the body, but it is imperfect and leaves a pathological state of hypertension. So the proper treatment for hypertension is to make blood supply of the heart, brain and kidneys return to normality. Simply lowering the elevated blood pressure may lead to a new imbalance of blood supply. Cupping therapy treats hypertension based on syndrome differentiation, this is just to regulate the functions of the whole body, promote its self-balance function. It has been proved that the holistic concept of cupping therapy is accorded with the principle of treatment of hypertension. Cupping therapy can not only lower high blood pressure, control it in a normal range, prevent and treat various complication of hypertension, but also make various imbalance states of the body return to normal.

Treatment Migraine by cupping therapy.
Research has proved that cupping therapy is an effective treatment for headaches. The first research study was published in 2008 in The American Journal of Chinese Medicine. The aim of this research was to evaluate the effectiveness of wet cupping therapy in the treatment of tension headaches and migraines. Wet cupping is one of the oldest recorded medical modalities in the world. The researchers treated seventy patients who were suffering from tension headaches. The patients were evaluated before and after treatment, and 66% recorded a decrease in the severity of their headaches.
