Some thoughts on Fire Cupping

A few years ago I wrote an article on Fire Cupping to try and encourage its use in practice. This was published in The Journal of Chinese Medicine.  A reprint of the article is available from the Journal.

I am at present working on a Chinese Herb Quick Reference and a clinic reference for the Shang Hang Za Bing Lun.
