Blood letting is a technique which instigates bleeding to help to rid the blood of pathogens, and promote overall health and well-being.
These pathogens may have been caused by a range of issues, including trauma, heat, cold and stagnation of the blood.
Bloodletting can help to treat high fever, convulsion, loss of consciousness, and muscle tension and pain. It can also encourage circulation and healthy qi flow throughout the body.
How does bloodletting work?
Your therapist will use small acupuncture needles, or a special tool to gently prick the skin repeatedly. A small amount of bleeding will then occur, but the procedure is almost painless. Sometimes, the treatment will be administered in combination with cupping, further encouraging the expulsion of stagnant blood and circulation.
