Genetic Theory – A Suggested Cupping Therapy Mechanism of action

Genetic Theory – A Suggested Cupping Therapy Mechanism of action

Tamer Shaban, Munir Ravalia

Abstract:
The Cupping Therapy mechanism of action is not clear. Cupping may increase local blood circulation, and may have an immunomodulation effect. Local and systemic effects of Cupping Therapy were reported. Genetic expression is a physiological process that regulates body functions. Genetic modulation is a reported acupuncture effect. In this article, the authors suggest genetic modulation theory as one of the possible mechanisms of action of cupping therapy.
