Hi Dr Halevi, i hope you're well and that your country's leaders find a healing road that leads from this moment - i finally have a copy of your book and have to say it's been extremely useful as an aid in treating specific conditions. I do have questions regarding what i've read so far but will read further before posting those.

I'm writing to ask for your recommendation on a text/ web page to look at regarding cupping in treatment. I would like to better understand techniques (duration, order of placement, placement) and process (application for boosting kyo regions or dispersing jitsu). I'm also interested to know more about older, more extreme techniques which may have come from Japan or China, but i'm not sure. As always, your guidance is appreciated.

Thank you for your kind comments Roger. There are some books on cupping techniques as well as some nice articles too.
For articles, I suggest that you write an Email to the Journal of Chinese Medicine:
and ask them for copies of their articles on this or related topics.
As for books,here is a name of a book I am told is quite good on the subject:

Cupping Therapy: Traditional Chinese Medicine (Paperback)
by Ilkay Zihni Chirali, Julian Scott

Hope this helps.
