Cupping Therapy for Shoulder Pain Relief

The video shows cupping therapy for shoulder pain relief. So what is cupping therapy?
Cupping is a traditional Chinese medicine practice. It is a technique used to stimulate
blood flow in the body. This makes cupping therapy an effective treatment in relieving
muscle tightness, soreness, and tension.

To illustrate this ancient therapeutic treatment works by placing special cups onto
the skin. These cups then create a vacuum on the applied areas. As a result, the muscles
and tissues is sucked or drawn upwards. Now, this causes an increase in blood flow and
loosens the muscles and tissues. Thus, stimulating the natural healing process of the
body.

Moreover, cupping is considered a deep tissue massage. This is due to its functions and
numerous benefits. Some of these include breaking up scar tissues and reducing pain in
the shoulders, back, and neck areas.

Furthermore, cupping may cause temporary soreness and bruises. However, these are not
harmful. TCM practitioners actually view them as favourable outcomes. In fact, soreness
and bruises are indications that blockages and toxins in the body are removed successfully.

Acupressure for Post Concussion Syndrome

The video talks about the acupressure point for post-concussion syndrome. Now the
post-concussion syndrome occurs when concussion symptoms last longer than the
recovery period after the initial injury.

Usually, the recovery period for head injuries lasts from 3 weeks to 4 months. However,
there are other factors that play a major role in a patient’s recovery. For instance, the
degree or extent of the injury suffered by the patient. Furthermore, the healing ability
of the patient should also be considered.

Nevertheless, even if the injury is healed sometimes the symptoms won’t just go away.
This is what we call the post-concussion syndrome. The symptoms associated with this
condition include dizziness, headaches, and problems with concentration and memory.

To sum it up, be sure to watch the video on acupressure for post-concussion syndrome.
