“Where there’s stagnation, there will be pain. Remove the stagnation, and you remove the pain.”
The old Chinese medical maxim holds that pain results from the congestion, stagnation, and blockage of Qi, or vital energy, vital fluids, lymph, phlegm, and blood. If pain is the essence of disease, then suffering is a result of obstructed or irregular flow in the body. Chinese cupping is therefore a method of breaking up the blockage to restore the body’s natural flow of energy.
Here depicted in this picture, the spots chosen are to help a patient who typically has upper body pain in the back and shoulders. The most common job this kind of stiffness and pain occurs is someone who is behind a desk or computer, sitting for long periods at a time.
The muscle groups targeted are the upper trapezius, posterior deltoid, infraspinatus, upper paraspinal, rhomboid major and minor muscles.
