Cupping Glasses for Cupping Therapy & Cupping Massage
Cupping therapy is an ancient Chinese medicine technique used in traditional Chinese medicine as well as in naturopathy, physical therapy and alternative medicine. Practitioners put special round glass cups on the skin for a few minutes to create suction. The treatment triggers the body's self-healing process via a type of deep-tissue massage. Therapists use cupping therapy to increases blood flow, reduce muscle tightness, promote cell repair and release toxins from body tissues and organs. Because of the beneficial anti-inflammatory effects athletes often use cupping for muscle recovery. In addition, it is considered a good treatment option for patients with chronic pain. Cupping can also maximise the effects of an acupuncture treatment, which is why they are often offered together. Moreover, facial cupping is used in the cosmetic industry to treat acne or lift sagging facial muscles. In order to prevent a painful incision during cupping therapy, the rim of cupping glasses is carefully rounded or bent outward.
Fire Cupping Therapy
Negative pressure inside the cupping glass can be achieved through various methods. Fire cupping consists of holding a burning cotton wad inside the massage cup in order to heat the air inside. The cupping therapy glass is then placed on the skin. The glass cools down again on the skin which creates a vacuum and the patient's skin is pulled into the cup. The Cupping Glass without Ball from Karl Hecht is suitable for this type of cupping and can be used for both wet and dry cupping. The therapy cups can be purchased separately and are available in various sizes.
Fireless Cupping therapy
Fireless cupping uses a cupping glass with a removable suction ball made of rubber or silicone. The ball is pressed before the glass is applied to the skin and then released to create a vacuum. The strength of the vacuum depends on the amount of air that is pressed out of the suction ball. The Cupping Glass with Bulb from Teqler is suitable for this type of cupping and can be used for both wet and dry cupping. The red suction ball is made of silicone and these massage cups are also available in various sizes for different therapy requirements.
Cupping Glasses for Dry & Wet Cupping in Various Sizes
The cupping glasses are available in various sizes, from 2.5 to 6.5 cm. The models with a larger cupping rim are generally used for large-area application and usually produce a stronger suction. The small cupping glasses, on the other hand, have the advantage that they can be used selectively. The high-quality glass can usually be reprocessed and used again without any problems.
In addition to cupping glasses, we offer many other products for therapeutic treatments, e.g. needles and accessories for acupuncture treatments and a wide assortment of massage oils and massage tools. You will find all these products clearly arranged in the Diagnostics category.
