It is an ancient technique for disease management. This technique uses suction cups to suck the skin. Blood will be drawn towards the skin because of suction. This blood will bring out the body’s toxic materials. It is claimed that this technique cures many diseases.

A 4-Step Process

Step 1 – The first step is the selection of the points where the suction cup is going to be placed. This step is done by cupping professional. In different diseases, the cups are placed at different positions. In the case of migraine or depression-related diseases, the cups are placed near the cervical region. In the case of lower limb diseases, the cups are placed on the lower limbs. Some diseases like recurrent local infections, require cups to be placed near the site of infection but not exactly on the site.

Step 2 – The second step involves bringing the cups and placing them on the skin. Mainly three types of cups are used in cupping. One type of cup is made up of elastic silicone. This cup does not require any suction or heating. Only the cups need to be placed on the skin, with a little squeeze. When the person needs to place the cup on skin, he will squeeze the cups. The squeeze will create suction pressure and this pressure will be applied to the skin. Another type of suction cup is made up of glass. This suction cup requires heating. The cup is placed on the skin and heated or some heating material is placed inside a cup before placing it on the skin. This will decrease the pressure inside the cup. When it is placed on the skin, it will start sucking the skin. The third type of cup is the latest type available. This type has a valve at the top. It is directly placed on the skin and suction device will suck out the air from the cup through the valve. The suction will draw the blood towards the skin.

Step 3 – In the third step, the cupping professional will decide if it should be dry or wet. In the case of dry cupping, only the section is done but incision will not be done. This is a basic technique which will cure only mild diseases. The other method is called wet cupping. After the initial section has drawn some blood towards the skin, small cuts will be made on the skin. These cuts will draw the blood outside. It will give cure severe diseases

Step 4 – In the fourth step, the cups are removed from the skin. The time of the suction depends upon types of diseases. The professional cupping therapist will decide on how much time the cups should be kept on the skin. After the therapy is completed, the cups are removed and the skin is cleaned. If a person is completely healthy, there is no need for any antibiotic creams. In case the person has weak immunity, he can use the creams given by the cupping therapist.

DOES CUPPING WORK?

According to Medical News Today, cupping therapy has a lot of benefits especially in the case of chronic diseases like blood pressure. More research is needed to prove the benefits of cupping therapy. This therapy is available for ages and it has given benefits to many patients. When cupping therapy is done according to proper guidelines by a professional cupping therapist, it will work amazingly.

DOES CUPPING HURT?

There are many types of cupping. Dry cupping will not hurt at all because cuts are not made on the skin and cups are not moved. The wet method will cause a little pain when small cuts are on the skin. This pain is completely bearable. People have never complaint of extreme pain during cupping.
