It is common that there will be some circular bruises on the skin where the cups were placed.  They might be a bit sore in the stress points that were worked on but the soreness should subside along with the bruises in 2 or 3 days.  If the blood has been stagnant for a longer period of times, the bruises will be darker in color.

BaGuan Therapy

Cupping Therapy


(Cupping Therapy)

Ba Guan - Cupping therapy has been used in China for thousands of years. The earliest records of its use date from 28 AD.

Cupping regulates the flow of Qi and blood by drawing out and eliminating pathogenic factors. It can be used in conjunction with other TCM therapies. A cup is placed over an area and negative pressure of varying strengths is applied. The cup is left in situ for a short time or it may be moved to another area where treatment is required.

Ba Guan is great for pain relief and lowering blood pressure. Ba Guan can also be used for cold & flu symptoms such as a cough, sore throat, aching muscles, and upset stomach, as it can alleviate symptoms.  It can be used to get rid of acne, tiredness, and can open up movement in the back muscles to have greater flexibility by sliding cups around on the back to further the blood flow and circulation.

When the cups are initially suctioned onto the skin of the back, there might be a little discomfort from the tightness of the skin.  It will tingle at first but after a few seconds, there will be no pain at all.  Once the cups are removed, you'll feel a wonderful, relaxing feeling on your skin where the cups originally were, and it may itch for the first minute the cups are removed.
