Cupping
Popularization Project of Chinese
Folk Medical Treatment and Healthcare Cupping
The treatments of 20 common diseases Hello, everyone, Today I’m going to introduce the cupping
therapy for you. Cupping is a special treatment in the treasures of traditional Chinese
medicine, and a valuable cultural legacy of the Chinese
people. During the long historical courses, With the features of simple equipment, little
expenses, convenient operation, effective clinic
treatment, distinctive effect on health care and no
poisonous and side effects, Cupping is very popular among the folk people
for its It wins more and more welcomes form foreign
patients. And it is validated by historical practices
and modern clinics. The cupping uses the cups as its tool, and by burning and pumping, to exhaust the air in the cups so as to cause
negative pressure, and make the cups stick onto the points or
the cupping position, causing the skin to congest, blood stagnate
and blister, thus motivates the function of the channels,
meridians or vessels in the cupping points
and makes the blood and breath vigorous so as to serve the purpose of protecting and
curing diseases. The treatment of cupping The apparatus for cupping The apparatus for cupping include the fire
pots and the casting tools. There are many different kinds of fire pots. The commonly used pots are gallipots, glass
pots, rubber pots and inflating pots. The common people often use empty can glass
bottle for cupping. The fire-casting tools can be a thick iron
thread, with one bottom being fastened by pledget as
an igniting end, and the other bottom is used as a handle. Dip the igniting end into the alcohol, and
you can use it after igniting. You have to be cautious that you cannot dip
too much alcohol lest it drops on the patients and scald him. The cupping operation The cupping operation is the most important
sector for treatment, and it directly influence the cupping
treatment. The key to cupping is grasping the degree of
the negative pressure according to the patient’s physique, age, sex and
condition of his illness. We usually grasp the degree of the negative
pressure by controlling the length of the time the f’ire staying in the pots. The specif’ic operations include flash
lighting and deflating. Flash lighting Flash lighting is one of the important
operations for cupping. It is conducted like this: One hand holds the lighting tool and ignites
it, the other hand holds the f’ire pot with its
mouth downward. Then put the f’ire-casting tool into the pot
and quickly draws out, and rapidly move the pot on the cupping
position. Please watch the demonstration: Deflating Deflating is a kind of cupping which uses the
tools to deflate the air directly so as to cause the negative pressure. The deflating tool is a kind of
specially-made deflating tube. The advantage of deflating is that it will
not scald the patient. Please watch the demonstration: The degree of the negative pressure is
decided by the amount of the air deflated. The kinds of cupping There are many different kinds of cupping. The commonly used are pot-sitting, pot-flashing, pot-moving,
pot-needling and pot-bleeding. The pot-staying The pot-staying is also called pot-sitting, It can be divided into single pot method and
multi-pot method. The single pot method means treating with a
single pot. It is used to treat diseases of small areas
of pathological changes and fewer aimed acupoints. Multi-pot method means treating with many
pots simultaneously, which is used to treat the large areas of
pathological changes and more aimed acupoints. The length of the pot-staying time can be
decided according to the patients’ specif’ic
situations, And the usual clinical time is around ten to
f’ifteen minutes. Please watch the demonstration Flash cupping Flash cupping While employing flash cupping, you’d better wait until the skin becomes red
or mauve. Shift Cupping While employing shift cupping, First we have to spread warm fresh water on
the cupping acupoints, then cup thejar, and hold it Gently move thejars on the acupoints till the skin becomes mauve Needle cupping Needle cupping First sterilize the acupoints of the needle
cupping, Then prick with the needle, and stay thejar
on the area of the pricking area, that is coveringjar with needles. And the usual time of staying thejar is
around f’ifteen minutes. Blood Cupping Blood Cupping First sterilize the operating areas, then pinch the skin gently. And use three-edged needle to prick in a
triangle form After that cup the pricked area until it takes out some blood. Move the cup away, and wipe the blood clean. The contraindications as to the treatment What should we pay more attention to while
cupping Firstly, we should be aware of what diseases
can be treated by cupping Not every disease can be treated by cupping, Some diseases are forbidden to use cupping
treatment, such as ulcer, hypersusceptibility, edema are not suitable for cupping. And the pregnant women’s bellies and waists
are not suitable for cupping. The spontaneous bleeding or some diseases
which can not stop bleeding after injuries cannot be treated by cupping either. While cupping, we have to keep the room warm, and keep away the direct air flow lest the
patients catch cold. Thirdly, the lying posture should be
comfortable. While cupping, the lying posture can not be
changed lest thejars fall down. Fourthly, the usual area for cupping should
be those which have thick muscles and
elasticity, and without hair or unsmooth areas, in case that thejars may fall down. Fifthly, while raising thejars, you
shouldn’t drag them forcefully, or the skin may get injured and excessively
ache. While raising thejars, you should hold the
bottom of thejar and make it upside down, while another hand press the skin around the
jar’s ribbon so as to let the air come intojar through
the interspaces between the mouth and the
skin, so thejar can autonomously drop. Sixthly, while raising thejar may emerge
some local responses. Some febrile symptoms, yang symptoms appear fresh red, While the Yin symptoms, cold symptoms and
blood stagnation symptoms appear aubergine or dark red. Cold and humid symptoms appear bleb, bead, while weak symptoms appear red or light red. If the local area doesn’t have gore, or though there is little red symptoms, it disappears quickly after raising thejar
and returns to its normal color, it shows that the disease is not very serious. If the disease is nearly recovered or the acupoints aimed is not accurate enough, While having the former treatment of cupping, if the color on the area doesn’t fade away, it is not suitable to conduct the second
treatment on the same area. Treatment for some common diseases Cold Cold Cold is the upper respiratory tract infection
caused by virus. And people can catch cold all the year round. But it is more popular during spring and
winter, especially when the weather changes suddenly. The main symptoms of cold are: Nose stifling, sniveling, cough, sneezing, throat-ache and headache, Your feel very weak and ache all around, have
a fever, and dread cold. Traditional Chinese medicine believes that
cold belongs to superf’icial symptoms, and caused by cold and windy weather, and the bad weather hurt the lungs and
stomach. The treatment of cold: The acupoints aimed: The flowing line of the
back, urinary bladder and the Dazui acupoint. The way to decide the acupoints: There are
two the flowing line of the urinary bladder: The inner line is 1.5 inches away from the
middle of the back. It is this line. And the outer line is 3 inches away from the
middle of the back. It’s here Dazui acupoint is in the bone gap below the
seventh vertebra, First spread some warm water on the areas of
the meridians of urinary bladder, then put thejars on the meridians of the
urinary bladder on the back, and push thejars along the meridians of the
bladder until the skin appears mauve. Dazhui acupoint can be applied to the method
of staying cupping, and treated once every two days, and three
times for a period of treatment. Asthma asthma Asthma is a kind of usual irritable disease
which occurs repeatedly, and it can come on in all four seasons, especially during the autumn and winter. Asthma is connected with certain irritable
matters touched, the usual irritable matters include dusts,
farina and feather bits. Wheeze is different from pant in clinical
performance. Wheeze means the sound made by the throat,
while pant means dyspnea. If the two come on at the same time, it can
be called asthma. The clinical performance mainly includes pressing breath, noises made from throat, And feels stuffy and breathe diff’icultly,
sometimes even can not open the mouth and
lift the shoulders, can not lie flat. Some serious patients may appear anoxemia
such as lips and f’ingers emurple. Asthma happens in paroxysm, and the length of
the paroxysm varies greatly, some last only decades of minutes, while some may last several days without
relief. After the symptoms disappear, there will be
no abnormal appearance. Chinese medicine believes that the asthma is
resulted from the fact that the lodged sputum
stays in the lungs, plus the prevention of sputum and breath,
blocked windpipe caused by the cold, improper diets, or
feeling worried and angry. Choosing the acupoints for the treatment of
asthma: The way to choose the acupoint: The acupoint
of calming the asthma is 0.5 inch away from
Dazui point. Feiyu point is 1.5 inches away from the third
vertebra, Biyu point, Biyu point is 1.5 inches away from the
eleventh vertebra. Shenyu point, Shenyu point is 1.5 inches away from the
fourteenth vertebra. Fenglong point, Fenglong point is in the middle of line
joining the outer knee and outer ankle. The principle of choosing point: Acupoint for
calming the asthma is the experiencing
acupoint of treating asthma. Asthma is the disease of the lungs, and the Feiyu point mainly treat the disease
of the lungs, so we choose Feiyu point. The intrinsic reason of asthma is that the
logged sputum stays in lung, And it must be treated by dissolving the
sputum, The Chinese medicine believes that the
production of sputum is caused by the abnormal function of the
spleen, And the spleen cannot be moistened, and the
water stops and produces sputum. Biyu point has the function of strengthening
the spleen and moistening, Fenglong point is the experiencing point of
moistening sputum. So the two points are chosen. Asthma is a common chronic disease, and long
illness certainly results in weakness. It has some other clinical symptoms, such as def’iciency of the kidney Qi, or
kidney failing to absorb Qi. Such as opening the mouth, lifting the
shoulders while breathing, and breathing
heavily, lacking of strength. Shenyu has the function of supplementing the
kidney, so it is called Shenyu point. The treatment: Stay cupping on the above
points, And once every two days, ten times as a
period of treatment, And staying cupping for f’ifteen minutes. Stomach duct pain Stomach duct pain: The reasons to stomach duct pain are as
follows: Maladjustment of diets, cold and evil
affecting the stomach, unhappy feelings, the
liver Qi getting the stomach ill, Qi and blood stagnating, the stomach feeling
hungry, and the spleen and stomach feeling cold. Of which the evil illness and stagnation all
belong to repletion symptoms, while the spleen and stomach vacuity all
belong to vacuity symptoms. The treatment of stomach duct ache: The stomach duct ache can be divided into
repletion and vacuity stomach duct aches. The symptoms of repletion stomach duct ache
include the acute aches of the stomach duct, and the lukewarm and pressing can not ease
the ache. The acupoints chosen for treating the
repletion stomach duct ache: Weiyu Point: Weiyu point is 1.5 inches away
from the twelfth vertebra. Zhongwan point: Zhongwan point is in the
middle of the line between the tendon and
bellybutton. Zu Sanli Zusanli point is three inches down the outer
knees. The principle of choosing the point: Zhongwan
Point is near the stomach duct, and belongs
to local points chosen. Weiyu point can treat the diseases of stomach
and abdomen, Zusanli point belongs to the point chosen
from far, and the ancient people had the sayings that
“stay the cup on stomach and abdomen for
Sanli point”. The treatment: Using blood cupping on the
above points, Twice or three times a week, six times for a
period of treatment. The symptoms of the vacuity stomach duct ache Dull pain in stomach duct, lukewarm and pressing can ease the ache, Selected the points for treatment: Zhongwan,
Tianshu, Qihai, Zusanli. Zhongwan, Tianshu points: Tianshu point is
two inches away form the bellybutton, and Qihai point is one inch away down the
bellybutton. Zusanli point. The principle of selecting acupoints: Tianshu
point is the stomach’s channel point, and it
lies in the stomach, Hence it is a very important point for
treating disease of abdomen. Qihai is a point for strengthening the whole
body, The vacuous symptoms, especially the patients
of qi vacuity usually apply this point. Of the two points, Zhongwan is far, while
Zusanli is near, they two cooperate each
other, and can get better effects. Treatment: Applying needle cupping on the
above points, Three times a week, ten times a period of
treatment, And keep cupping for f’ifteen minutes. Constipation constipation Constipation is a usual disease, Under the normal situation, The food can be digested and absorbed through
the stomach and intestines, And the rest fecal can be egested after 24 or
48 hours, If the interval of the defecation is more
than 48 hours, it can be considered as constipation. The cause to constipation has many reasons, and the main reasons include accumulating
heat in the intestines, hurting the body
fluid, affect-mind ill-being, stagnant movement of Qi, blood vacuity and
liquid depletion, the defecation are lack of
moisture, old-aged and hypodynamic, enduring illness
and Qi vacuity, diff’icult defecation, etc. The treatment of constipation: Selecting the point: The following line of the front arm along the
Yangming intestine channel on both sides of
the hands, the following line of the crus along the
Yangming stomach channel on both sides of the
feet. The following line of the forearm along the
Yangming intestine channel on the hand, it is this line, and the flowing line of the crus along the
Yangming stomach channel of the stomach on
the feet is here. Treatment: Applying Moving cupping on the
above points, once a week, ten times a period of treatment. Diarrhea Diarrhea Diarrhea means the times of defecation
increase, and the dejection is sparce, Even sometimes it appears like water. Many causes lead to diarrhea, The main reasons are as follows: External
contraction of cold evil, cold-damp
encumbering the spleen, or eat some fat, sweet, cold or unclean food, and they hurt the spleen, stomach, causing
emotional disorder, binding depression of liver qi, and the
running cross counter-flow damage the spleen, Fatigue, interior damages, weak spleen and
stomach, debilitation of kidney Yang, spleen dampness and lukewarm, etc. External contraction of cold evil, food
damage and emotional disorder all belong to
repletion symptoms, and the weak spleen and stomach, debilitation
of kidney Yang belong to vacuity symptoms. Whatever they are, The key is the function hindrance of spleen
and stomach, function maladjustment of big
and small intestines. Selecting the points: The points on the back, Piyu point Piyu point is 1.5 inches away from the
eleventh vertebra, Shenyu point Shenyu point is 1.5 inches away from the
fourteenth vertebra. Dachangyu point Dachangyu point is 1.5 inches away from the
sixteenth vertebra, The points on the abdomen: Zhongwan, Tianshu,
Shenjue and Qihai The principles of selecting points: Chinese medicine believes that the abdomen is
Yin, and the back is Yang, the two groups of selected points, One is on the abdomen, and the other is on
the back, Yin and Yang function together, and it can adjust the Yin and Yang, breath
and blood, so as to cure the disease. The treatment: For each treatment select a group of
acupoints, and next time select another group of
acupoints. Applying the retained cupping on the above
points, Each time retain cupping for f’ifteen minutes. Once a day, and six times for a period of
treatment. Headache Headache Head is the converge of all Yang, and the get-together of the hand, feet and
Three Yang channels. The qi and blood of the f’ive viscera and six
organs all flow to the head, No matter it is external contraction or
damage, it can lead to the discordance of qi
and blood of the head, the blockage of channels and vessels and thus
result in headache. The headache owing to external contraction is
resulted by careless standing and living,
catching cold while sitting and lying, externally contracted wind, cold, damp and
heat evil, and it damage the head and block the qi of
Qingyang, block the qi and blood. The headache owing to internal damage is
caused by ascendant hyperactivity of liver
Yang, upper body affecting the clear orif’ice, weak constitution produces sputum, which
block the clear orif’ice, retain blood and
block the channels he channels of head are obstructed, Qi and
blood is def’icient, the encephala are lack of
nutrient. The treatment of headache can apply
slide-cupping along the sequential passage of
the governing vessels on the back and that of the bladder. If it is the pain on the back head, greater
Yang vessels of the hand and that of the feet
can be assorted to treat the headache. The sequential passage of the front arm and
crus can apply the slide-cupping. If it is the pain on the front head, the Yang
brightness channel of the hands and the Yang
brightness channel of the feet can be applied
to it. The sequential passage of the front arm and
crus can apply the slide-cupping. If it hemicrania, the slide-cupping can be
used on the sequential passage along the lesser Yang channel of the hand on
the same side and that of the feet, the front arm and the crus. If it is vertex ache, the reverting Yin
channel of the hand and the feet can be
assorted. On the sequential passage of the front arm
and the crus can apply the slid-cupping. Twice a week, six times a period of treatment. Stiff neck Stiff neck The stiff neck is caused by the improper
sleeping posture, or the wind, cold, evil qi which leads to the maladjustment of the local
channels and vessels, blockage of Qi and
blood. And the main clinical manifestations are as
follows, the neck is stiff and ache, and it is not swift to turn around, and the
movement area is restricted. The treatment of stiff neck: Selecting points: The way to select the
points: Dazui, Jianwai, Tianzongand Ashi points. Ashi
point is the point of pressing the pains Ashi point is in this area, retain cupping on Dazui, Jianwai, Tianzong points for f’ifteen minutes. The treatment: Retain cupping on the above points for
f’ifteen minutes. Once every two days, three times for a period
of treatment. Backache backache Backache belong to the impediment pattern in
Chinese medicine, And it is caused by the damage of cold and
evil, blockage of retained blood, injuries
from falls, chronic fatigue, impotence of qi and blood. The clinical symptoms mainly are: Backache,
discomfort, ache and heavy. Backache is mainly found among the old-aged
and those who often bend over the desks for a
long time. Some of the patients have the experience of
the wrench and catching cold of the spinal
column. The treatment of backache: The selection of
the points It’s on the governing vessel and bladder
channel. On the sequential passage of the back and
Weizhong point. While applying the slide-cupping on the
governing vessel and bladder channel until the skin looks purple. The badjar is no better than a canjar. Weizhong point. The treatment: Applying slide-cupping on the sequential
passage along the governing vessel and
bladder channel on the back. While on the weizhong point apply the
retained cupping. The cupping should be retained for f’ifteen
minutes every time, once a day, and ten times for a period of
treatment. While treating, the patients should practice
his back and waist, especially the patients who always bend over
the desks or shoulder heavy objects, They should train their waist and back more. Lumbago (Pain in waist) Lumbago (Pain in waist) Lumbago is an ordinary disease, which is mainly caused by much work,
maladjustment of bones and muscles, hindrance of the flowing of Qi and blood, or the blockage of blood or catching cold
while sweating, or cold and damp strike the body, impediment
of the governing meridians, This disease often happens to middle or
old-aged men who are over f’ifty years old.
Their def’iciency of liver and kidney function,
their scarcity of medulla, maladjustment of Qi and blood, vacuity of the
governing meridians, withering muscles and
bones are also the causes. The treatment of lumbago: Selecting points
while treating, Shenyu, yaoyan and ashi points The principle of selecting points the waist is the mansion of kidney so most chronic lumbago patients are in the
vacuity of kidney Shenyu function as supplementing kidneys, so
it is called Shenyu point Yaoyan point is the peculiar point outside
the channels, and the experiencing points for lumbago, so
it is used. Ashi point is the pain-pressing point of the
waist. While pressing the point, the patients
usually cried “ah” so it is called ashi point. The treatment of lumbago: Select the acupoints such as Shenyu, Yaoyan
and Ashi. Shenyu point is 1.5 inches away from the
fourteenth lumbar clutching upside, 1.5 inches away which is parallel to the
fourteenth lumbar, this is Yuming point. Yaoyan point is 3 inches away from the
sixteenth vertebra, 3 inches away from the fourteenth, f’ifteenth
and sixteenth vertebra. It is at this point. Here it is the patient’s Ashi point, that is, the pain pressing point. The treatment method: Keep the cup retained on the above points for
twenty minutes, twice a week, ten times for a period of
treatment. Sciatica Sciatica Sciatica means the pains on the hucklebone nerve branches. It is an ordinary nerve disease. It can be divided into primary and secondary
types. The primary sciatica is associated with coldness, dampness, damage or infection. The secondary sciatica mainly caused by the surrounding nerve
tissues with pathological changes, which press the nerves mechanically. Such as the lumbar extruding symptom. Most of the patients had cold or injuries
before, and the clinical manifestations are: Sudden
pains in the waist or the leg on one side, and the pain radiates from the waist to the
back part of legs and outside crus gradually. The pain sharpens while the patient is moving,
coughing, sneezing, defecating, or bowing, In the middle of the hip, middle bone nest,
gastrocnemius where the hucklebone nerves pass, there are
obvious pains. Sciatica is caused by the impediment, as
believed by the Chinese medicine such as affected by three evils of the cold,
wind and damp, which hinders or blocks the channels and
blood vessels. And so the patients feel
painful because of the blockage. Treatment of Sciatica: How to select the
acupoints. We should select the acupoints along the
hucklebone nerves pass. They are shenyu, dachangyu, huantiao, yinmen, weizhong,
chengshan. Methods of treatment: Apply the needle cupping on the above points
and retain cupping for twenty minutes. Three times a week, six times for a period of
treatment. Dysmenorrheal Dysmenorrheal Dysmenorrheal means the periodical acute
pains on the lower and bottom waist before or after the catamenia, Some serious patients have the symptoms of
naupathia, vomit and swoon. Dysmenorrheal is mainly discovered among the
young women. According to clinical manifestation, it is
divided into primary and secondary
Dysmenorrheal. Cupping is very effective on primary
Dysmenorrheal. Dysmenorrheal is usually resulted from worry or anger in catamenia, or being caught
in the rain, stricken by the cold, or sitting on the wet places, Which lead to the blockage of Qi and blood so
the patient feels pain It may be caused by vacuity and coldness of
the spleen, kidney or the uterine vessels loss their warmth The treatment ofDysmenorrheal: Select the
acupoints ganyu, piyu, shenyu, guanyuan and sanyinjiao
points The principle of selecting these points: Guanyuan point is the on Ren meridian, and the ancient people believe that “the Ren
meridian is in charge of uterus”. So Guanyuan is the main point to treat the
gynecologic diseases. The selection of Guanyu point belongs to the
way of near-fetching. To select Sanyinjiao point, which is the
joining point of liver, spleen and kidney, belongs to far-reaching method. To select acupoints far and near can be very
effective on Dysmenorrheal, Ganyu soothes the liver and enhances Qi. It mainly treats the Dysmenorrheal caused by
qi stagnation and blood stasis. Piyu and shenyu points strengthen the body
and nourish kidney so they mainly treat Dysmenorrheal caused by
spleen-kidney vacuity cold. Treatment: Applying needle cupping on the
above acupoints, a period of treatment a month. It can usually begin on the second day before
catamenia, ten times for a period. Menstrual disorder Menstrual disorder Menstrual disorder mainly results from Qi stagnation and blood stasis caused by
worries and angers, or being caught in rain or eating raw or cold
food, or sitting on damp places too long. They bring about the stasis of cold and damp in the meridians or spleen-kidney yang vacuity Menstrual disorder may be caused by weakness,
fatigue during the menstrual period. Treatment of menstrual disorder: Select the following acupoints, Ganyu, piyu,
shenyu, qihai, sanyinjiao. Principle for the selection of the acupoints: Menstrual disorder is associated with liver,
spleen and kidney. Def’iciency of kidney Qi will lead to the
disharmony of the meridians Hot liver will not store blood, liver
depression causes stagnation of Qi, which
will block the channels and vessels, and spleen vacuity will not control blood.
Those can result in menstrual disorder. So we select the three acupoints: Ganyu, piyu
and shenyu. The selection of Qihai point belongs to the
way of near-fetching. To select Sanyinjiao point, which is the
joining point of liver, spleen and kidney, belongs to far-reaching method. To select acupoints far and near can be very
effective on replenishing and restoring Qi
and blood, and nourishing uterus. Treatment applying needle cupping on the above acupoints and retain cupping for f’ifteen minutes. Once a day, ten times for a period of
treatment. The patients should take care not to eat raw or cold food during menstrual period Avoid mental stimulation and reduce the
physical laboring. Chronic inflammation of pelvic cavity Chronic inflammation of pelvic cavity Chronic inflammation of pelvic cavity means the inflammation of the reproductive and
connective tissues in the pelvis cavity. It results from incomplete treatment of acute
inflammation of pelvic cavity. The pathological changes are restricted in
salpinx, ovary and connective tissue in the pelvic
cavity. The clinical manifestation mainly contains
the pains in the lower abdomen and aches in
bottom waist. And it sharpens after fatigue and sexual
intercourse. Traditional Chinese medicine believes that its causes lies in unhappy feelings, fatigue
and interior injuries as well as the stricken by exterior evil and
poison, which lead to Qi stagnation and blood
stasis. The treatment of chronic pelvic cavity: Select the following acupoints: Shenyu, shangliao, ciliao, zhongliao, xialiao, shangliao, ciliao, zhongliao and xialiao,
which are called Eight liao points. Qihai, guanyu, zusanli, sanyinjiao. Principle of selecting the points: Eight liao is the general name of the upper,
hypo, middle and lower liao. Eight liaos acupoints lie in the rumpbone and they are the important acupoints to treat
diseases in the urinary and reproductive
systems. Shenyu strengthens waist, invigorating kidney
and nourishing qi. Guan yuan is a controlling point, and the
meeting point of the three yin channels of
feet. Qihai is also a controlling point along the
Ren meridian, and regulates qi and
cultivates blood. Zusanli is stomach channel point, which
strengthens spleen and enhances qi. Sanyinjiao point is the meeting point of the
three organs of liver, spleen and kidney. It is the f’irst most important acupoint for
gynaecological diseases. Treating apply retained cupping on the above points
for twenty minutes, three times a week, six times for a period. Postpartum body pain Postpartum body pain Postpartum body pain means the vacuity of qi and blood or catching cold, which leads to the Qi stasis in the channels,
vessels, so the patient feels pain in part or all of
the body. The treatment of postpartum body pain, select
the points, Acupoints along Du meridian and bladder
meridian and the back, feiyu, piyu and shenyu. Treatment method: Use slide-cupping on those acupoints. Apply retained cupping on the acupoints of
feiyu, piyu and shenyu for f’ifteen minutes, three times a week, six times for a period. The principle of selecting the acupoints:
Slide-cuping centers on expelling the evil, while retained cupping centers on supporting
right. The intermingle of expelling the evil and
supporting right achieves the aim treatment. Children’s malnutrition Children’s malnutrition It is a children’s disease featured in thin
physique, sparsity of hair, bloated abdomen and mental exhaustion. It mainly results from the injuries of the
spleen and the stomach by consuming unclean
food, or improper care of stomach, weakness after enduring disease and
maladjustment after illness or the illness caused by worms. And therefore it can not digest water and
food, and after a certain duration it lead to the
illness from internal, and f’inally to the
infantile malnutrition. Treatment for infantile malnutrition in
children: Select the following acupoints, piyu,
zhongwan, zusanli point. Select the acupoints: Piyu, zhongwan and zusanli. Why to select these acupoints: Piyu is on the back meridian, which is the point through which Qi of the
internal organs goes to the back. So Beiyu point can be used to treat the
corresponding diseases of the internal organs. Children’s malnutrition is the injury of the
spleen and stomach, so Piyu point can be used to treat it. Zusanli is the stomach channel point, and Zhongwan point is near the Zhongjiao
point, and it belongs to local selection. Children with malnutrition should take food
in regular time and ration, and they can not eat too much or too little, and cannot eat too much of the sweet,
greasing, raw and cold food. Children’s Diarrhea Children’s Diarrhea It means the children defecate more often
than usual, Three to f’ive times a day, even eleven times
a day, The dejecta is very thin, or looks like water. The children’s spleen and stomach are weak, whether they externally catches cold or
internally absorbs too much food, the maladjustment of spleen and kidney will
appear, and their function of the moistening
is out of work. And so they cannot digest the water or food,
which directly goes to the big intestine, thus diarrhea happens. The treatment of children’s diarrhea Select the acupoints, shenjue, tianshu, zusanli point. If diarrhea is caused by food, add Jianli and
qihai points. If it is caused by damp and heat, add quchi. If it is due to weakness in spleen and
stomach, add piyu point. Select the acupoints to cure children’s
diarrhea: Shenjue, Tianshu, jianli, qihai, quchi, piyu
points. Treatment: Apply retained cupping on the
above acupoints. Retain cupping for f’ive minutes, once every two days, six times for a period. Cupping is very effective for children’s
diarrhea. Especially to the children who are afraid of
acupuncture and moxibustion. And it is very simple, and without any
poisonous or side effect, and could be easily accepted by children. While treating, the improper dietetic habits should be
rectif’ied, feed the baby at right time, and provide him with easily-digested food
with enough nutrition. Children’s enuresis Children’s enuresis Children’s enuresis is also called nocturia,
commonly called bed-wetting. Children’s enuresis means the children, though he is growing normally with normal
function of emiction, cannot automatically control himself while
sleeping. It is not a disease if the child wets the bed after he is too tired or drink too much water. The reason to enuresis is mainly the
maladjustment of emiction function, mostly of the nerve system which controls the
emication function of the bladder, especially the tardy growth of the emication
nerve center in the brain. The treatment of children’s enuresis Select two groups of the acupoints: One group are shenjue, zhongji, sanyinjiao
point, And the other group are Shenyu, baldder yu,
ciliao, Shenyu, bladder yu, ciliao, shenjue, zhongji, sanyinjiao points. The principle of selecting these points: Shenjue, zhongji points belong to local
selection. San Yin Jiao (three intersection) is the
meeting point of liver, spleen and kidney, as the enuresis in children is associated
with spleen and kidney, so we choose Sanyinjiao point Shenyu supplements kidney, while bladder yu mainly treats the disease
related to bladder. Treatment Method: Select one group of acupoints this time, and next time select another group. Apply the retained cupping method, each time
retain about f’ive minutes. Oral Cavity Canker Oral Cavity Canker The oral cavity canker means the repeated
canker of the mucous membrane in the oral
cavity. And aches on some parts, and the aches in
oral canker worsens while talking or eating and the stimulation by cold, hot,
acid and sweet food. It is believed that the oral cavity canker is
