What is Cupping theraphy?

Dear Doctor: What is Cupping?

Dear Patient: In the ancient China, cupping was called "horn method". While cupping, one or many jars are attached to the skin surface to treat pain and some other disorders. It cause local congestion through the negative pressure. Sometimes the jars are put along specific meridians or around the pain area. The cupping has the function of warming and promoting the free flow of Qi ( chi ) along meridians, dispelling cold dampness, diminishing swellings and pains. The cupping method is mainly used to treat Bi syndrome caused by wind dampness, such as pain of the low back, shoulders, and leg, gastrointestinal disorders such as stomachache, vomiting, and diarrhea, and the lung disease such as cough and asthma.
