Biboting Cupping is an alternative therapy that uses suction cups to stimulate your skin and muscles. It can be done on your face or body. The suction promotes increased blood circulation, which may help relieve muscle tension, promote cell repair, and aid in other regeneration.
It’s also said to improve the flow of your “qi” (pronounced “chee”). Qi is a Chinese word meaning life force.
Cup marks are almost always left behind, but they do serve a diagnostic purpose; the size, shape, and colour are said to reflect the amount of “stagnation” or cellular waste build up. These marks fade as your lymphatic system processes the waste.
What are the benefits of Biboting Cupping?
The benefits of biboting cupping include local pain relief and muscle relaxation. Cupping improves overall health by removing the energy blockages that TCM practitioners identify as barriers to the flow of healthy energy or QI.
Biboting Cupping has been found to be beneficial in conditions such as
High blood pressure
Shingles (herpes zoster),
Facial cupping has been shown to:
increase oxygen-rich blood circulation
strengthen skin and connective tissues
stimulate cells responsible for collagen production
relax muscle tension
Because of this, the practice is said to:
minimize the appearance of scars, fine lines, and wrinkles
tone chin, jawline, neck, and décolletage
regulate oil production
improve nutrient delivery and product absorption
How Biboting Cupping works
The suction effect pulls blood into the area of skin underneath the cup. This saturates the surrounding tissue with fresh blood and promotes new blood vessel formation.
The vacuum-like suction separates different layers of tissues, resulting in microtrauma and tearing. This triggers an inflammatory response, flooding the area with white blood cells, platelets, and other healing aids.
Will it leave bruises?
Facial cupping shouldn’t leave bruises. However, bruising can occur if the cup is left in the same place for too long. Discoloration can occur in as little as five seconds, so make sure you keep the cup moving.
