CUPPING THERAPY

SIN KANG TCM

Sin Kang TCM clinic therapists are well-versed with cupping, a treatment method whereby a therapist places heated glass and bamboo cups on meridian points of your body to create suction to pull up the skin to get the blood flowing.


We provide the best cupping in Singapore with our team of highly qualified TCM therapists. Cupping therapy is a traditional Chinese approach to improve blood flow in the body. It involves heating the air within a glass cup to create a vacuum and placing the cup along the various meridian channels on the body. The vacuum in the cup creates suction which pulls the skin up gently to stimulate blood flow, promoting healing and restoring balance. The pulling action of the skin from cupping helps to regulate the flow of Qi in the body.


As such, cupping helps to relieve muscle tension and pain, combat acne, obesity, shingles, upper respiratory syndrome, headache, menstrual cramps, gastrointestinal problems, as well as to maintain general wellness.

The following groups should be treated with extra caution:

Children. Cupping therapy should not be used on children under the age of four.

Cupping treatment is a type of alternative medicine in which a therapist suctions your skin using specific cups for a few minutes. It's used for a variety of reasons, including pain relief, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation, and well-being, as well as as a deep-tissue massage.

Usually we recommend that patients undergo a second cupping treatment after the pot mark disappears, because the time for the pot mark to disappear varies from person to person. Cupping therapy is usually performed together with acupuncture. As an auxiliary treatment in conjunction with acupuncture, the combination of the two treatments will make the overall treatment effect better.

Cupping is a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) procedure for removing stagnation and stimulating qi flow (chi). If the free flow of vital energy in the body and the world around us is disrupted or disturbed, it can result in stagnation (blockages) or imbalances in the body.

Yes, you can request to do only a cupping treatment. However, doing Tuina before a cupping treatment helps to relax muscles and enhance blood circulation, making the overall treatment more effective. Nevertheless, you may seek a comprehensive assessment from our physicians before the cupping treatment. Our team will be more than happy to answer any queries during the consultation.
