BENTUSA: FIRE CUPPING
This unique experience uses heat resistant glasses to remove toxins from the body. The glasses are warmed and applied to the back, creating a vacuum to draw out the toxins. A gentle rub where the cups were removed is given at the close of the treatment.
WHAT IS BENTUSA: FIRE CUPPING?
Bentusa is an ancient healing art used for diagnosis and treatment of many conditions. Historically, Hippocrates used it in treating internal diseases and structural problems. It is also used as a system of healthcare to restore balance of the four humors (blood, phlegm, yellow bile and black bile). In China, it is used to dispel stagnation in the blood and lymphatic systems, thereby improving circulation of life force energy. They also use it to treat respiratory diseases, such as the common cold, pneumonia, and bronchitis. It can be used on back, neck, shoulders and other parts of the musculoskeletal system.
DURING A SESSION
The heat resistant fire cup glasses are warmed with fire on the inside of the cup, which creates a vacuum, and the cup is then placed on the body to create reverse pressure.
The cups are placed on the body for about 5-15 minutes. Then they are removed by pressing the fleshy side around the cup to release the vacuum pressure. After removing the cups, I will gently rub the body parts where the bentusa cups were removed.
Red round markings will appear upon the removal of cups, due to the suction effect, and will disappear within a few days.
