One of a number of therapeutic treatments employed in chinese medicine with the aim of causing stimulation of the skin and tissue by means of the production of vacuum.
Vacuum therapy has many broad applications, including diseases of internal medicine, and of the nervous or musculoskeletal systems, amongst others. Some effects include local reactions (external inflammation when treating an internal problem), relaxation of the muscles and analgesia.
It also results in some local hyperemia (increase in blood flow to a part of the body), eliminates external infectious symptoms, activates circulation, stimulates the metabolism, regulates the nervous system, improves the defenses, and strengthens tendons and so on.
