Cupping refers to an ancient Chinese practice in which the cupis applied to the skin and the localized suction in the cup is reduced (by using change in heat or by suctioning out air), so that the skin and superficial muscle layer is drawn into and held in the cup. In the gliding cupping, the cup may be moved while the suction of skin is active, causing a regional pulling of the skin and muscle. Cups may produce red / purple color on the cupping area that may remain for 1-5 days. Cupping is applied to certain acupuncture points, as well as to regions of the body that are affected by pain.

Gua-Sha is a healing technique used in Asia by practitioners of traditional medicine. Gua means to scrap, rub or friction. Sha is the term used to describe congestion of blood at the surface of the body. It involves palpation and cutaneous stimulation where the skin is pressured, in a stroking manner using round-edged instruments. When friction is applied in repeated even strokes, the sha surfaces as small red petechiae. In minutes the petechiae fade into echymotic patches. The color and rate of fading are both diagnostic and prognostic indicators. The purpose of raising sha is to remove stagnation and promoting circulation. These sha often results in slight bruising at the treated area. The bruising, which is not painful, usually resolves in 5-10 days. The benefits of Gua Sha are numerous. It moves “stagnation”, promoting normal circulation to the muscles, tissues, and organs directly beneath the surface treated. The patient experiences immediate changes in stiffness, pain and mobility. Normal metabolic processes are restored by the movement of fluids as nutrients are carried to the tissues and metabolic wastes are carried away.
