Types of vacuum cupping therapy
Types of vacuum cupping therapy may be “dry” and with a withdrawal of blood.
Method with a withdrawal of blood is applied in two stages: first as a “dry” method, however, after the initial removal of the cup the therapist makes microscopic cuts and returns the cup into place. Thus, the upper blood congestion leaves the human body. Blood withdrawal method is more suitable for deoxidation.
Another model of division is the position of the cup: static and dynamic. Meanwhile, static position can be both “dry”, and with a withdrawal of blood. Dynamic position is carried out in a passive form, when the massage is performed by the therapist, or in active form, when patients carry out a series of movements by themselves, thereby involving muscles under the cups. Static method is most often accompanied by blood withdrawal and is used for deoxidation. Passive dynamic method is used to work with affected soft tissues to return their functionality. Active dynamic method is suitable for work with healthy soft tissues to improve their functionality.
The choice of location of cups placing may depend on the condition of the tissue or bioactive reflex zones, and may vary depending on the case.
