What is FU YANG GUAN 扶阳罐?
Over the last 3,000 years, the written history of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has mostly evolved. TCM believes that all diseases are due to channel and meridian blockage. As with many other TCM practices, Fu Yang Guan therapy can be applied on acupressure points along our meridian channel. Meridians are meant to carry blood and energy to all organs. Practitioners attribute many of our physiological issues to our meridian network's blockages. One of the most common types of blockage is stagnating blood. This essentially refers to how as the circulatory system weakens with age, blood movement becomes restricted. That is why Fu Yang Guan (扶阳罐) practices to specifically clear these blockages.
Fu Yang Guan (扶阳罐) is the first TCM equipment which combines heat, infrared and magnetic therapy into our body. It is an effective combination of multiple functions involving scraping (Gua Sha 刮痧), cupping (Ba Guan 拔罐) and moxibustion (灸) in 1 equipment. Easy and safe to use, this new and unique device is a perfect replacement unit for the traditional hand Gua Sha and Moxibustion (灸). It is a contemporary product that incorporates ancient wisdom most effectively.
So is Fu Yang Guan (扶阳罐)a combination of Gua Sha (刮痧), Ba Guan (拔罐) and Moxibustion (灸)?
GUA SHA (刮痧)
Scraping therapy involves scraping the skin to stimulate the lymphatic system. The therapist applies pressure while stroking the skin with a flat hand-held instrument in scraping therapy. This process mobilises stagnating blood in lymphatic tissue while drawing metabolic waste to the skin surface. While scraping produces good results, many will have to bear with the painful skin abrading method.
BA GUAN (拔罐)
Cupping therapy is where cups are heated and applied to affected areas to fight inflammation. With a cup, it expels the air within it, forming a well of negative pressure. The pressure, in turn, causes suction when you apply the cup to your skin. Suction lasts for 10-15 minutes at most and opens up the capillaries just beneath the skin's surface. This action triggers the immune system to produce cytokines. Cytokines are small proteins which work closely with the immune system to regulate inflammation. It improves circulation by allowing freshly oxygenated blood to restore the injured area. It is effective but leaves cupping marks on your skin which takes 3- 10days to heal.
A form of heat therapy in which dried plant materials made of Chinese Mugwort (艾草) is burned very near the skin's surface until the area reddens and becomes suffused with warmth. The Moxa Stick is held over specific areas, often corresponding to certain acupuncture points. The intention is to warm and invigorate the Qi's flow in the body and dispel specific pathogenic influences. A sudden flooding of warmth that quickly radiates along a specific pathway from the site of application indicates the arrival of the Qi and signals that blockage has been freed in the channel. This means good results. Unfortunately, the smouldering heat may cause injuries if the treatment was not carried out carefully.
FU YANG GUAN (扶阳罐) comprise all these ancient techniques…but made better?
Fu Yang Guan (扶阳罐) is made of quality porcelain. It looks like a gourd, hand-held to apply hot & scraping therapy when plugged in a power outlet. There are two levels of temperature to choose for different areas and application. Its function includes detoxification, remove blood stasis, release coolness and dampness. It unblocks the channels and meridians efficiently, tonifies Yang Qi deficiency. Fu Yang Guan (扶阳罐) also uses infrared radiation, which penetrates deep into body tissues. Unlike the burning of Moxa which results in smoke, odour and ashes - Fu Yang Guan (扶阳罐) is odourless. It incorporates various elements without any pain like Gua Sha (刮痧) or any long-lasting cupping marks like Ba Guan (拔罐). Besides relieving muscle aches, what is less known is that this treatment is also useful for physique obesity and body contouring.
