Bentosa/Ventosa - The Ancient Art of Cupping
There are two common types of cupping Fire and Dry cupping. Will discuss the Fire cupping first. Fire cupping use a glass or cup to suction the cold parts at the back of the body. Our body has meridian points in which energy flows to every part of the body. The cold part of the body are given emphasis as believed to have this area for lack of blood circulation and blockages. In short, this are the meridian points that need to be open in order to have normal energy flow in the body. The Fire cupping can be executed with a glass cup, candle and oil. Massage oil is applied on the back first to create a better seal on the cups, then the candle is lighted (with match or lighter) with cotton candle ball on the top. Once the candle is lighted, the cup is placed or cover over the candle. The oxygen will be removed and the suction will appear (as the skin will bloat or puff). The red marks that will appear after the cupping will disappear after a day or two.
Another method is called Dry Cupping. This is applying a plastic cup on the skin and by using a pump then air is removed by suction. The application for this cupping is very simple but to do it, a pump and glass cup are needed to do the cupping.
In general, after the cupping is done the person will know that something in the body has vastly improved. Cupping method is extremely effective treatment.
Cupping should be done by an expert. The photos show the President of AWHAI Ma. Joceline Bilasano (Reiki Master) and AWHAI Staff Chovel Rivera applying the Bentosa/Ventosa to their patient.
