Chinese Blood Cupping Mishap (GRAPHIC CONTENT)

 

For over 3,000 years, this practice has been typically performed unsupervised. With very little scientific evidence showing any effectiveness from a medical stand point. Practitioners of this practice claim it can fight cancer, but there is zero data to back that bold statement.

Research suggests that blood cupping can be harmful to both obese and thin patients. There are several different types of this practice ranging from dry, to fire cupping.

“Blood cupping” is an ancient Chinese holistic practice that is said to mobilize blood flow and enhance the body’s healing properties. Cups are placed on the skin using heat to create a vacuum.

An example of blood cupping is shown in a photograph in this article, where you can see the cups attached and note how the action of the vacuum reportedly draws toxins out of the body.

Chinese blood cupping therapy can cause bruising at the suction sites; but, in this photograph it’s clear that the blood cupping therapy has gone awry, leaving painful blisters filled with blood serum. Ouch!
