According to a recent statistic, as many as one in 20 people living in Australia suffer from fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia is chronic musculoskeletal condition characterized by persistent pain, fatigue, and tenderness in isolated areas. Symptoms vary from person to person but almost always have direct effect on the patient’s quality of life.
While fibromyalgia is the second most common musculoskeletal disorder after osteoarthritis, there unfortunately is no clear-cut treatment plan, as the disorder varies from person to person and there is no cure. Many patients find themselves on large combinations of medication to help combat symptoms but often find themselves suffering unwanted side effects.
These medicinal treatment options often come with a large amount of unwanted side effects, ranging from minor symptoms such as dry mouth to much more dangerous symptoms, like suicidal thoughts. Common side effects include nausea, dizziness, fatigue, hypertension, difficulty concentration, and are often subject to dangerous interactions with other drugs.
Cupping therapy is an age-old technique used in traditional Chinese medicine to treat a variety of ailments, including pain associated with fibromyalgia. This therapy technique includes heated glass cups which are then applied to parts of the body. The heat created a vacuum which in return, releases toxins and clears any blockages while also activating the lymphatic system. Bellabaci Cupping therapy allows patients to get the relief they need naturally while posing zero to little risks or side effects compared to more traditional medicinal treatments.
There have been studies performed which prove that the natural treatment of cupping therapy is just as, if not more, effective compared to more traditional treatments. The most recent study regarding the effect of cupping therapy on fibromyalgia patients was performed in 2011, according to Mayo Clinic. The study was performed in Beijing with 30 consecutive patients suffering from symptoms of fibromyalgia, including generalized chronic pain. The patients received a traditional cupping treatment every day for 15 days and the intensity of their symptoms prior to starting treatment and 5, 10, 15 days, and 2 weeks following the final treatment. Findings concluded that medicinal cupping therapy did in fact relieve
symptoms associated with fibromyalgia.
