What is Cupping?
Cupping or Hijama is a form of holistic therapy used throughout history as not only a preventative treatment to maintain health but also a curative one to improve conditions and ailments.
70% of diseases, pain and ailments are due to the blood being unable to reach certain parts of the body.
Cupping therapy can be used for a variety of conditions. It can be used to treat pain, improve blood flow increasing the production of red and white blood cells, ease scar tissue deep within muscles and connective tissues and reduce swelling and muscle knots.
In addition to this, Cupping can be used to detox the body both generally as well as specifically, boosting the immune system and eliminating toxins by drawing them into the skin where they are readily removed.
How Does it Work?
In a nutshell, cups are placed at strategic points of the body, such as affected areas, muscles and organs to improve blood circulation, reduce stagnation, reduce inflammation and relieve pain by drawing up and removing the blood by making slight grazes.

Types of Cupping
You may have heard of the different types of cupping: Wet, dry and fire.
Wet Cupping: The process of using a vacuum in the form of cups to withdraw the harmful blood which lies beneath the surface of the skin (Recommended). Wet cupping is best when done on an empty stomach
Dry Cupping: The process of using a vacuum on the different areas of the body in order to gather the blood in the area without making the incisions and removing blood.
Dry Massage Cupping: A similar process to the dry cupping but with the use of olive oil to allow movement of the cups. It is a form of deep tissue massage that doesn’t facilitate the use of hands but instead uses a cup and a pump gun to achieve the therapeutic effect. The point of this therapy is to get the blood flowing and unblock the lymphatic system. It works by drawing up stagnant blood from the tissues and moving it to the natural exit points in the body. The lymphatic system is then activated and will help by mobilizing the waste for excretion from the body.
Fire Cupping: Using a flame and a glass cup to provide a suction vacuum rather than the general suction pump. (recommended if the body feels cold)
