So now that you have finished having cupping therapy you see a variety of hues, textures, patches and other 'signs' what do they mean? Some of them get worried and think that they might have taken a wrong treatment for themselves, but wait! Know them first and then come to the conclusion if yet you find something wrong consult your specialist.
1. The primary spot (Severe Stagnation)
These are dark purple to relatively black spots. This is a sign of extreme stagnation and there are good chances that the toxins have now been discharged from the body to process. It is the most alluring sign of cupping. It implies you have got much dark, dormant blood up to the surface. Five days are given for each spot to heal yet a few bilirubin signs can remain till two weeks. This is a sign that the overall system is challenged.
2. The second (Moderate stagnation)
This is redder than the purple spot. A sign which describes toxins have been discharged, yet they do not remain dormant for long. You may see this after two or three sessions. It implies you have got some dark, stagnant blood on the surface. There might be blisters or clear liquid too. The spots will turn a yellowish green as the bilirubin of that dormant blood gets processed.
3. The third (Healthy blood circulation)
Don’t get fooled by this, because these are clear pinkish looking. You may not have to put the cups on sufficiently well or leave them on for a long time, they can be spotted on someone who is healthy and has a good immune system. At a time when a person is excessively dried out, it becomes impossible to have cupping do anything or work effectively.
4. The fourth (Congestion & Toxins)
These are the spots with pink to the lavender surrounding. People with lots of congestion & toxins marks experience serious difficulties in moving. This can be very painful. In this situation, the tissues get too high to discharge the stale dark blood. The background might be in the greenish lavender shade. People with such patches require a lot of time to recover.
5. The fifth (Purpura)
These spots are Lavender to yellow in appearance. This is the worst case as it traditionally means that there is a nerve or bone issue. This isn't a good sign and unfortunately not normal. Keep in mind, cupping is not the silver bullet; but it is an incredible apparatus and will enable the body to recapture from homeostasis.
6. Sixth (Blisters)
In Blisters, you may see water filled rankles and no other redness under the cup. This is an alternate sort of stagnation verging on outright dryness. Think about a river bed. It isn't sufficiently wet to be muddy; however, if you pick and press it, the water may come out. The patient needs more fluid and smooth motion. Best to discharge the liquid if the blisters are big, and cover. Proceed with treatment after the bristles have healed. It is essential to ensure that the patient is hydrated well before the next treatment.
These are redness around the cups. This happens because of the histamine reaction. These individuals may have sensitivities or some type of immune system issue. Other than that, any of the above can happen. This may cause irritation after treatment. Irritation is a histamine response and leaves rapidly. If the histamine response (a reddish halo) is vast, it can be an indicator that the body is in an inflammatory response somewhere. If it doesn't indicate it could be typical for darker skin or demonstrate that the histamine response is too moderate. People who take antihistamines may not demonstrate any halo.
Here we see a good example of alternative treatment with a typical treatment time. The inward zone of the circle is somewhere between moderate to normal in appearance, it might even have some lavender look to it. However, on the external edge is a corona of direct to extreme stagnation. This is a deeper set of toxin and will take more time to get the desired outcome.
