Best Cupping Therapy in Singapore at Sin Kang TCM Clinic

Cupping is a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practice that makes use of small, heated glass cups to create a vacuum on the skin. This suction pulls the skin and muscles up into the cup, which can help relieve pain, inflammation, and congestion in the body. Although cupping is well-known for these benefits, many individuals would be astonished to find out that it can also be used for slimming and weight loss as well.

Our physicians at Sin Kang TCM clinic have over 20 years of experience in cupping and can use this method to treat and manage your weight effectively.

Benefits of Cupping For Weight Loss

Enhances blood circulation: As we get older, our blood flow weakens, causing excess “dampness” to accumulate in the body. Cupping can help to remove this stagnation in the blood. Improved blood flow helps to quickly flush away toxins such as excess water and waste in the body. All these will lead to weight loss.

Improves metabolism: A weakened circulatory system prevents the delivery of fresh blood to cells, tissues, and organs. Over time, these organs become more metabolically inefficient. Cupping opens up the connective tissues, allowing fresh blood to move around the body. These cells, tissues, and organs can then grow and repair themselves, in turn improving the body’s metabolism and promoting healthy weight loss.

Loosens visceral fats: Visceral fat, also known as organ fat or intra-abdominal fat, is the type of fat that collects around the organs. Having too much visceral fat can increase the risk for health problems, such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Cupping affects tissues deep beneath the skin and can help to loosen the visceral fats nestling around the organs, breaking them down so that they can be easily metabolised.
