Yes, cupping often leaves circular marks on the skin. These marks are not bruises but are caused by the suction pulling blood to the surface. They are typically temporary and fade within a few days to a week.
Cupping is generally not painful. People often feel a sensation of tightness or pulling during the suction, but it is typically well-tolerated. The intensity can be adjusted based on individual comfort levels.
Cupping is used for various conditions, including musculoskeletal pain, respiratory issues, and stress reduction. It is also employed for promoting overall well-being and addressing specific patterns of disharmony in traditional Chinese medicine.
Cupping sessions can vary in duration, typically ranging from 10 to 30 minutes. The exact time depends on the purpose of the treatment and the individual’s response to cupping.
While cupping is generally safe, it may not be suitable for individuals with certain skin conditions, bleeding disorders, or during pregnancy. Always consult with a qualified practitioner to ensure cupping is appropriate for your specific situation.
The frequency of cupping sessions depends on the individual’s health goals and the nature of the condition being treated. It may be recommended weekly, bi-weekly, or less frequently based on the assessment of the practitioner.
