I strongly recommend Cupping for Life. Camilla is a very knowledgable and personable practitioner who takes the time to speak with her patients to understand what their needs are. She has a truly healing touch and presence and she is also compassionate. I have had 2 sessions with her in which I addressed the problem during the treatment and as soon as I got home I experienced the (physical) results. Truly amazing! I am an educated consumer who likes to research something prior to making a decision and I sincerely believe in the healing powers of the Cupping Therapy, especially by Camilla. She is truly one of the best in this field and I highly recommend her.

The lungs in East Asian medicine govern or are in charge of part of the immunes system, and ailments that impact the entire respiratory tract from the nose to the deepest lobes of the lungs. Some of these ailments associated with the lungs are: seasonal allergies, chronic year round allergies, colds, flus, any cough including those from bronchitis and pneumonia, and COPD. To address these ailments, you must treat the lungs often with a combination of acupuncture and cupping therapy.

Specifically for overcoming colds, flus, bronchitis, and pneumonia, it is important to get cupping early. If you get cupping therapy as soon as you recognize that you are getting sick, you stand a good chance of limiting your illness to 24 to 48 hours. I have seen this play out in my clinic when strong colds and flus run through town. The patients that got cupping early, were only sick for a day or two, while non-patients or individuals that didnโ€™t know to get cupping therapy done where sick for two weeks.

Cupping therapy will help your lungs recover and especially to deal with phlegm if the cold or flu does make it into your lungs, or if it takes you a few days to realize youโ€™ve come down with a cold. In these cases, cupping will help shorten the length of your cold, but it may take more than 24 to 48 hours.

How does cupping help?

Cupping helps to stimulate the immune system to focus on the lungs and upper respiratory tract. This means the immune system essentially sends troops to the area to clean up the cold and flu virus or bacteria invaders. Getting cupping early in a cold or flu, may cause you to spike a fever for 24 hours. This is a sign that the immune system is quite active.

Cupping also will help break up phlegm in your lungs, which will allow you to cough it out. This is especially useful if you feel any congestion in your chest. Ever have a cold where it felt like you had some phlegm that needed to come out, but you just couldnโ€™t cough it up? Cupping will help with this.

Can cupping be preventative for colds and flus?

Cupping therapy can help keep your immune system in tip top shape if done regularly during the autumn and winter cold and flu season. This will make you less likely to get sick. In other words, if you keep your immune system strong, you can be exposed to colds and flus from kids at school or your coworkers and you will not get sick. Just being exposed to a cold or flu does not always correlate to getting sick. We all know people who seem to never get sick, and people who seem to always get sick. This is a reflection of the strength of their immune system.

Eating well, exercising regularly, and getting regular sleep all contribute to a healthy immune system. Adding regular cupping therapy to your routine if you work in an environment where you regularly get exposed to colds and flus can also help give you that added protection against getting sick.

Cupping therapy has origins in most countries across the globe. I took a three day seminar from the International Cupping Therapy Association and learned about both Greek and Russian cupping to overcome colds and flus. These techniques have many similarities to East Asian fire cupping, but have specific protocols for either breaking up phlegm in the lungs with the Greek method, or to stimulate the immune system to overcome a cold quickly with the Russian method.

Cupping is the new flu shot .

To boost immunity we focus treatment on what I like to think of as the capital of the immune system: the neck, upper back, and shoulders. Keeping this zone free, clear and flowing is an absolute must in all treatments for those with chronic colds and flus, sinus infections, respiratory infections, and cough.

The reverse is true too. If these areas of your body are subject to the stagnating effect of chronic tightness, you may find yourself vulnerable to the onset of a cold or flu. Ever notice how right before you go under the weather your neck and shoulders ache like crazy? And shortly after your nose starts running? This is the perfect moment to run for the cups.

Cupping's suction action liberates stagnated circulation in tissues and pulls toxins out to the surface, where they are properly metabolized and removed from the system. This leaves many with the famous mark of Chinese detoxification - red or purple hickies.

With the recent hype about cupping, you may have heard medical "experts" actively naysaying the therapy for this very reason. Recently in The Atlantic, James Hamblin implores "Please, Michael Phelps Stop Cupping," an article in which he claims "That suction pulls his skin up into the cup, breaking capillaries and causing blood to pool and stagnate, creating a bruise....A bruise is a blood clot, though, and clotted blood is definitionally not flowing."

May I remind Dr. Hamblin that a bruise is the result of trauma to tissues - a hit that breaks capillary vessels, causing blood to seep or hemorrhage into surrounding interstitial tissues. The force of suction from a cup is nothing compared to the force of an injury that bruises, and therefore breaks ALL affected capillaries both stagnated and healthy. Cupping can't touch a healthy blood vessel, only a stagnated one that is already pathologically clogged and full of pressure.

Vessels within inflamed, pathological tissue are vulnerable and break easily to the suction of a cup. This causes the once "clogged" vessel to reform into a healthier, normalized condition. See, in cupping we are dealing with tissues in which blood was already pathologically stagnating. Healthy tissue does not bruise nor produce clotting under the force of cupping.

If you see someone who had cupping looking sucker punched by round circles, it is because they already had a particularly intense level of backed up toxins and stagnation in stiff, problematic tissue. You'll see this often in patients during or post flu. Healthy tissues subjected to the same cupping force, will show nothing but a pinking of the skin that quickly disappears after cup removal. It's not uncommon to see intense red or purple marks in the pain area after cupping, and absolutely nothing a few inches over where the tissue is healthy.

Cupping restores the proper currents through your system, giving you back the energy you once lost to tension. Post cupping, patients with an oncoming cold often notice the disappearance of runny nose, head fog, stiffness and aching, and that general sensation of "coming down" with something. Used on those with a cold or flu already in full effect, cupping often helps the illness run its course more rapidy and prevent lingering symptoms.

But even better is to use cupping to prevent a cold or flu altogether by keeping a free and clear current flowing in your neck and back starting now and through the Fall and Winter.

Now, the caveat. Cupping isn't right for everyone. In our practice, we green light it for most of our patients, but there are people with certain conditions (i.e. clotting disorders) who aren't good candidates. So if you're not sure whether it's for you - just ask your acupuncturist. It's his or her job to let you know if you're good to go under the cup.
