Cupping therapy

A Traditional Treatment with Modern Applications
Cupping therapy

Cupping therapy is an old healing practice that uses suction cups to exert specific pressure on the skin. People think that this suction may aid with pain, swelling, blood flow, relaxation, and overall well-being. The suction is created by heating the air inside the cups, or by using a pump and the skin is lifted by the suction from the cups, which is intended to alleviate tension and promote healing. It's a complementary therapy that can potentially enhance overall well-being.

Applying heated or vacuum cups to the skin, creating suction and drawing tissue upwards.

Different materials used for cups: glass, silicone, bamboo.

Two main types: wet cupping (with slight skin incision) and dry cupping (without).

Different types of cupping therapy


Dry cupping

This is the most common type of cupping therapy. It involves placing heated cups on the skin to create suction. The cups are typically left in place for 5-10 minutes.


Wet cupping

This type of cupping therapy is similar to dry cupping, but it also involves making small incisions in the skin and drawing out a small amount of blood.


Facial cupping

This type of cupping therapy is specifically designed for the face. It can help to reduce wrinkles, puffiness, and acne.


Moving cupping

This type of cupping therapy involves moving the cups around the skin after they have been placed. This can help to massage the muscles and improve circulation.
