What others have said about George’s training workshops

I received very positive feedback on increased myofascial functionality following the cupping treatment I spoke with you about. The client really enjoyed the treatment, although a strong intensity, was more beneficial and looking forward to further cupping! So yay! Thank you!  Tara Beaton (Remedial Massage Therapist) Oct 2016

I attended your Chinese Flame Cupping course at MIMT on the 8th and 9th of August 2015. I wanted to send you a quick note to say thank you so much for such a wonderful presentation.

A brief introduction to Flame Cupping and Gua Sha (Myofascial scraping) for myotherapists, remedial massage therapists, massage therapists, osteopaths, physiotherapists, chiropractors…

Flame Cupping and Gua Sha are techniques stemming from traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), albeit, Cupping, is also commonly used across Europe. Interestingly European and Chinese folk medicine initially used cupping to treat the common cold.

For example, TCM refers to using Cupping to remove ‘wind-cold invasion’ (a syndrome which refers to acute infection – such as the common cold often associated with viral infection) whereas the Greeks (one of the many Europeans) referred to using ‘ventouszez’ (Cupping) for ‘kreeoma’ (catching cold – such as the common cold). Unlike the Europeans, traditional Chinese medicine also refers to another syndrome associated with acute infection, ‘wind-heat invasion’ (a syndrome associated with acute infections usually caused by bacteria). Once this syndrome is identified, Gua Sha is the preferred method.

For those of you not familiar with these techniques, it is interesting to observe that when Flame Cupping is applied to the body, it is not uncommon to feel a ‘cold spot’ on the area cupped once the cup is removed! Similarly, after applying Gua Sha, it is not uncommon to feel the generation of heat in the area the Gua Sha had been applied. This makes sense, considering that the aim of using Flame Cupping is to remove ‘wind-cold’, hence the cold feeling on the body surface often felt after Cupping.

As Gua Sha is removing ‘wind-heat’ from the body, it makes sense that heat is felt radiating from the body surface after the application of Gua Sha. TCM practitioners, however, would not stop there when treating acute infections! Chinese herbs that were specific for each of these syndromes (wind-cold or wind-heat) would be prescribed to further assist in the management of acute infections.

Unlike the Europeans, TCM also applied both Cupping and Gua Sha for the management of musculoskeletal pain. As it was with the common cold, Cupping, for example, is used for muscle pain due to ‘wind-cold invasion’. Think about a client who presents with, for example, neck pain that had occurred after sleeping in an air-conditioned room, where the person during the night felt chilled. On waking, their neck pain was intense and they felt some relief by getting under a hot shower or applying a heat pack. TCM practitioners would interpret this presentation of neck pain caused by a syndrome referred to as ‘Qi and Blood stagnation’ (this is a reference to pain based on the idea that pain is a sign of the stagnation of Qi (pronounced Chee) and Blood in the body) due to ‘wind-cold invasion’. Cupping would be the technique of choice because it is used to eliminate wind and cold, and it warms the meridians and improves local circulation to the area of pain. Using this logic, it makes sense that Cupping is the preferred method instead of Gua Sha.

For those of you without a TCM background, there is no need to get lost in the TCM terminology. In fact, you will be pleased to know that research in the western science of neurophysiology offers a clear and concise scientific explanation of the mechanism of actions for both of these traditional techniques.

For example, neurophysiology explains that Flame Cupping can be used in the management of muscle pain because it has the capacity to reduce the transmission of pain by activating large-diameter nerve fibres. The activation of the large-diameter nerve fibres works on two pathways within the body that modify pain transmission; one closes the gate on pain and the other initiates the release of opioids (the body’s natural pain-relieving chemicals).

In contrast, neurophysiology explains that Gua Sha can be used in the management of muscle pain because it upregulates a specific substance (referred to as HO1) in the body that has both been shown to have anti-nociceptive (the neurophysiological term for pain relief) and anti-inflammatory actions. These are just two functions of the four functions attributed to this HO1. 

Whether you are a myotherapist, remedial massage therapist, massage therapist, an osteopath, physiotherapist or other hands-on therapists, you can learn the art and science of using Flame Cupping and Gua Sha to the management of muscle stiffness, tensions and pain, and better still, you don’t have to know anything about TCM to use them successfully in your clinics. The neurophysiology explanation for both Flame Cupping and Gua Sha is very clear and it is easy to integrate both Flame Cupping and Gua Sha into your clinical practice when explained by an expert in the field!

With over 30 years’ clinical and training experience in healthcare, Dr George Dellas (Chinese Medicine) is that expert who guarantees to have your understanding and knowing how to apply Flame Cupping and Gua Sha to your current treatment plans. George is an enthusiastic trainer who freely shares his extensive and broad clinical experiences with you.

The nett effect of applying both Flame Cupping and Gua Sha for musculoskeletal issues includes:

  1. Reduction in pain
  2. Improvements in range of motion
  3. Increased local circulation
  4. Feeling freer
  5. Enhanced feeling of ease

Dr George Dellas (registered Chinese Medicine practitioner) is able to explain this research so that you are able to easily understand what is occurring under the skin when you are using Flame Cupping and Gua Sha.
