Why do the Olympic Champions Choose Fire Cupping? / 为什么连奥运冠军都在拔火罐?

Fire Cupping is a therapy in which heated glass cups are applied to the skin along the meridians of the body, creating suction as a way of stimulating the flow of energy.

 

World’s top swimmer Michael Phelps once again caught the spot light. This time is not about swimming, but about an ancient therapy---cupping. A recent photo of Phelps swimming shows clear fire cupping prints on his body, stirring up public interest for this therapy. Many of my patients are also discussing with me about this topic. Fire cupping is a very common therapy in TCM, and I almost use it on a daily base. It must be notified that cupping is not only used in China. Many Arabic friends are saying that this therapy is called “Hijama”, which has been used in the middle east since 1400 years ago. In my experience, many patients of European immigrants origin also said that similar therapy were used in their grandma’s generation. However, this therapy in TCM was indeed an invention of ancient China. It has been an important part of TCM, and is widely used. This therapy is convenient, simple, and effective, so it is also used by doctors to treat or prevent many diseases and problems.

 

 

2000 years ago, in ancient China fire cupping was called “horn therapy” referring to the use of cow or lamb horns to suck out the sepsis to cure ulcer. The earliest record was in The Fifty Two Treatment, a TCM classical written more than 2000 years ago during the Western Han dynasty. Later, cups made of clay, bamboo, glass were used. Today we have many more different cups to choose from. There are plastic cups, medal cups, rubber cups, infrared cups, acupuncture cups, magnetic cups, etc..

 

 

 

 

The diseases and problems that can be treated by fire cupping, besides pain problems, are numerous. There are even people who wrote books of millions of words to introduce this therapy. Here are some example of fire-cupping treatable problems:

 

Muscle pain: To use cupping for these problem, the rule of thumb is to apply where ever it hurts. Someone would experience swelling and pain, which is a normal side effect. The prints of cupping can usually be gone within two weeks.

 

Allergic problems: apply the fire cup to the belly button two to three times a week and it would have an effect after several months.

 

Cold: Taking the dazhui acupuncture point as the beginning spot of treatment, apply fire cupping along the spine---and this will speed up the self-healing of cold.

 

Asthma: when asthma happens, press on the sternum to find a pain spot and apply hot cupping on the spot can effectively sooth the symptom of asthma.

 

Besides these above problems, there are many other problems that can be treat by fire cupping. Some of the more simple problems can be self-treated at home. The more you do it yourself, the better you can apply it to solve more problems and become a “family doctor”

 

Today, cupping tools for family use are very simple and convenient. If you do not have access to these tools, please contact our clinic for some top quality hot cupping tools.

最近,一张美国著名游泳运动员“飞鱼”菲尔普斯跃入泳池,露出周身遍布的拔火罐痕迹的照片,让大家对于这一古老的治疗方法产生了浓厚的兴趣。我的病人们也都在跟我讨论这个话题。其实,拔火罐是中医很常见的治疗方法,我几乎每天都在使用。

 

网上很多阿拉伯地区的朋友也在说,这叫做“Hijama”,在阿拉伯用了1400年了。在我以往的行医经历中,有一些来自欧洲的移民也说过他们祖母那一辈的人也曾用过类似的东西。不过,中医的这种疗法确实是中国原创的治疗方法,一直以来都是中医的一个重要组成部分,并广泛地被民间应用。因为其方便,易操作,有效,也被医生们用于多种疾病的防治。

 

火罐疗法在中国古代被称为“角法”。最早见于2000多年前西汉时代的《五十二病方》。当时的做法是使用牛羊的角吸出脓血治疗痈疽。后来有发明了陶罐,竹罐,药罐,玻璃罐。今天还有可以更方便使用的塑料罐。此外,还有金属罐,橡胶罐,红外线罐,针灸罐,磁疗罐等五花八门的用具。

 

火罐疗法治疗的病,除了大家熟悉的各种疼痛症状外,还可以治疗上百种病。甚至有人总结了火罐的功效,写出了百万字的专著来介绍火罐疗法。下面我想介绍几个火罐的神奇用法:

 

1.肌肉疼痛:火罐治疗疼痛的原则就是哪里痛拔哪里。有个别人拔过火罐以后局部会有肿胀或疼痛的感觉,这属于正常。火罐的印记基本可在两周内完全消失。

 

2.过敏性疾病:用火罐拔肚脐,每周两次或三次。坚持数月后必见疗效。

 

3.感冒:以大椎穴为主,沿着脊柱拔火罐10分钟,会明显加速感冒的痊愈。

 

4.哮喘:当哮喘发作时,在胸骨上按压出痛点,之后在上拔罐。可缓解哮喘的症状。

 

除此以外,还有更多的病症可以用火罐治疗。一些简单的病症,在家里就可以自己治疗了。若假以时日,积累丰富经验,就可以处理更多的问题,成为全家的“家庭医生”。

 

家庭使用的火罐是很简单的器械。如果您没有合适的,我们诊所可以提供高质量的火罐用具。
