All about cupping therapy that you should know

Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.

The cups may be made of:

Glass
Bamboo
Earthenware
Silicone

Cupping therapy might be trendy now, but it’s not new. It dates back to ancient Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern cultures. One of the oldest medical textbooks in the world, the Ebers Papyrus, describes how the ancient Egyptians used cupping therapy in 1,550 B.C.

Types

There are different methods of cupping, including:

Dry
Wet

getting-cupped

During both types of cupping, your therapist will put a flammable substance such as alcohol, herbs, or paper in a cup and set it on fire. As the fire goes out, he puts the cup upside down on your skin.

As the air inside the cup cools, it creates a vacuum. This causes your skin to rise and redden as your blood vessels expand. The cup is generally left in place for up to 3 minutes.

A more modern version of cupping uses a rubber pump instead of fire to create the vacuum inside the cup. Sometimes therapists use silicone cups, which they can move from place to place on your skin for a massage-like effect.

Wet cupping creates a mild suction by leaving a cup in place for about 3 minutes. The therapist then removes the cup and uses a small scalpel to make light, tiny cuts on your skin. Next, he or she does a second suction to draw out a small quantity of blood.

You might get 3-5 cups in your first session. Or you might just try one to see how it goes. It’s rare to get more than 5-7 cups, the British Cupping Society notes.

After ward, you may get an antibiotic ointment and bandage to prevent infection. Your skin should look normal again within 10 days.

Cupping therapy supporters believe that wet cupping removes harmful substances and toxins from the body to promote healing. But that’s not proven.

Some people also get “needle cupping,” in which the therapist first inserts acupuncture needles and then puts cups over them.

What Does the Research Show?
There haven’t been many scientific studies on cupping.

One report, published in 2015 in the Journal of Traditional and Complementary Medicine, notes that it could help with acne, herpes zoster, and pain management.

That’s similar to the findings from a 2012 report, published in PLoS One. Australian and Chinese researchers reviewed 135 studies on cupping. They concluded that cupping therapy may be effective when people also get other treatments, like acupuncture or medications, for various diseases and conditions, such as:

Herpes zoster
Acne
Facial paralysis
Cervical spondylosis

But those researchers noted many of the studies they reviewed could have been biased and that better studies are needed.

The British Cupping Society says that cupping therapy is used to treat:

Blood disorders such as anemia and hemophilia
Rheumatic diseases such as arthritis and fibromyalgia
Fertility and gynecological disorders
Skin problems such as eczema and acne
High blood pressure
Migraines
Anxiety and depression
Bronchial congestion caused by allergies and asthma
Varicose veins
There isn’t research to back all of that up.

Side Effects
Cupping is fairly safe, as long as you go to a trained health professional. But you could have these side effects in the area where the cups touch your skin:

Mild discomfort
Burns
Bruises
Skin infection
What to Ask Your Doctor First
Talk with your doctor before you start cupping or any other type of alternative or complementary medicine. And talk extensively with your cupping therapist, too, before you try it. Ask:

What conditions do they use cupping for?
What is your training?
What is your experience in using it?
Am I already getting the standard treatments for my condition?
Are there reasons I should not get cupping?

भाई दूज का त्योहार

भाई दूज का त्योहार भाई बहन के स्नेह को सुदृढ़ करता है। यह त्योहार दीवाली के दो दिन बाद मनाया जाता है।
हिन्दू धर्म में भाई-बहन के स्नेह-प्रतीक दो त्योहार मनाये जाते हैं – एक रक्षाबंधन जो श्रावण मास की पूर्णिमा को मनाया जाता है। इसमें भाई बहन की रक्षा करने की प्रतिज्ञा करता है। दूसरा त्योहार, ‘भाई दूज’ का होता है। इसमें बहनें भाई की लम्बी आयु की प्रार्थना करती हैं। भाई दूज का त्योहार कार्तिक मास की द्वितीया को मनाया जाता है।
भैया दूज को भ्रातृ द्वितीया भी कहते हैं। इस पर्व का प्रमुख लक्ष्य भाई तथा बहन के पावन संबंध व प्रेमभाव की स्थापना करना है। इस दिन बहनें बेरी पूजन भी करती हैं। इस दिन बहनें भाइयों के स्वस्थ तथा दीर्घायु होने की मंगल कामना करके तिलक लगाती हैं। इस दिन बहनें भाइयों को तेल मलकर गंगा यमुना में स्नान भी कराती हैं। यदि गंगा यमुना में नहीं नहाया जा सके तो भाई को बहन के घर नहाना चाहिए।
यदि बहन अपने हाथ से भाई को जीमाए तो भाई की उम्र बढ़ती है और जीवन के कष्ट दूर होते हैं। इस दिन चाहिए कि बहनें भाइयों को चावल खिलाएं। इस दिन बहन के घर भोजन करने का विशेष महत्व है। बहन चचेरी अथवा ममेरी कोई भी हो सकती है। यदि कोई बहन न हो तो गाय, नदी आदि स्त्रीत्व पदार्थ का ध्यान करके अथवा उसके समीप बैठ कर भोजन कर लेना भी शुभ माना जाता है।
इस दिन गोधन कूटने की प्रथा भी है। गोबर की मानव मूर्ति बना कर छाती पर ईंट रखकर स्त्रियां उसे मूसलों से तोड़ती हैं। स्त्रियां घर-घर जाकर चना, गूम तथा भटकैया चराव कर जिव्हा को भटकैया के कांटे से दागती भी हैं। दोपहर पर्यन्त यह सब करके बहन भाई पूजा विधान से इस पर्व को प्रसन्नता से मनाते हैं। इस दिन यमराज तथा यमुना जी के पूजन का विशेष महत्व है।

भैया दूज की कथा
भगवान सूर्य नारायण की पत्नी का नाम छाया था। उनकी कोख से यमराज तथा यमुना का जन्म हुआ था। यमुना यमराज से बड़ा स्नेह करती थी। वह उससे बराबर निवेदन करती कि इष्ट मित्रों सहित उसके घर आकर भोजन करो। अपने कार्य में व्यस्त यमराज बात को टालता रहा। कार्तिक शुक्ला का दिन आया। यमुना ने उस दिन फिर यमराज को भोजन के लिए निमंत्रण देकर, उसे अपने घर आने के लिए वचनबद्ध कर लिया।

यमराज ने सोचा कि मैं तो प्राणों को हरने वाला हूं। मुझे कोई भी अपने घर नहीं बुलाना चाहता। बहन जिस सद्भावना से मुझे बुला रही है, उसका पालन करना मेरा धर्म है। बहन के घर आते समय यमराज ने नरक निवास करने वाले जीवों को मुक्त कर दिया। यमराज को अपने घर आया देखकर यमुना की खुशी का ठिकाना नहीं रहा। उसने स्नान कर पूजन करके व्यंजन परोसकर भोजन कराया। यमुना द्वारा किए गए आतिथ्य से यमराज ने प्रसन्न होकर बहन को वर मांगने का आदेश दिया।
यमुना ने कहा कि भद्र! आप प्रति वर्ष इसी दिन मेरे घर आया करो। मेरी तरह जो बहन इस दिन अपने भाई को आदर सत्कार करके टीका करे, उसे तुम्हारा भय न रहे। यमराज ने तथास्तु कहकर यमुना को अमूल्य वस्त्राभूषण देकर यमलोक की राह की। इसी दिन से पर्व की परम्परा बनी। ऐसी मान्यता है कि जो आतिथ्य स्वीकार करते हैं, उन्हें यम का भय नहीं रहता। इसीलिए भैयादूज को यमराज तथा यमुना का पूजन किया जाता है।

Story behind Dhanteras – Happy Dhanteras

Dhanteras is a most celebrated festival in India. Dhanteras festival falls in the month of Kartik(Oct-Nov) on the thirteenth day of the dark fortnight. Two days before Diwali, Dhanteras is celebrated. In India, on Dhanteras, Lakshmi – the Goddess of wealth – is worshiped to provide prosperity and happiness. As the word itself explains, Dhan means wealth and ‘Tera’ means 13th. People are celebrating Dhanteras by lighting a lamp in evening. Dhan – Lakshmi is welcomed into the house. Some families are also making Rangoli in front of the door just to welcome the Goddess Lakshmi. Aartis are sung and fruits and sweets are offered to her. On Dhanteras Lord Kuber is also worshiped by Hindu. This custom of worshiping Lakshmi and Kuber together is in the prospect of doubling the benefits of such prayers.

There is a belief that on Dhanteras buying new clothes, Gold and silver are very good and it will increase the wealth and prosperity. New things which are purchase on Dhanteras will get 13 times growth over a year.

Story behind the Dhanteras

There was a story that the 16- year old son of King Hima. His horoscope predicted his death by snake-bite on the fourth day of his marriage. On that particular day, his newly-wed wife did not allow him to sleep. She laid out all her ornaments and lots of gold and silver coins in a heap at the entrance of the sleeping chamber and lit lamps all over the place. Then she narrated stories and sang songs to keep her husband from falling asleep.
The next day, when Yama, the god of Death, arrived at the prince’s doorstep in the guise of a Serpent, his eyes were dazzled and blinded by the brilliance of the lamps and the jewelry. Yam could not enter the Prince’s chamber, so he climbed on top of the heap of gold coins and sat there the entire night listening to the stories and songs. In the morning, he silently went away.
Thus, the young prince was saved from the clutches of death by the cleverness of his new bride, and the day came to be celebrated as Dhanteras. And the following days came to be called Naraka Chaturdashi (‘Naraka’ means hell and Chaturdashi mean 14th). It is also known as ‘Yamadeepdaan’ as the ladies of the house light earthen lamps or ‘deep’ and these are kept burning throughout the night glorifying Yama, the god of Death. Since this is the night before Diwali, it is also called ‘Chhhoti Diwali’ or Diwali minor.
