What happens during a Cupping therapy treatment?
Oil is used to massage the area to be treated. This helps relax the body and prepare the area for cupping. Glass cups are used for fire cupping therapy. A flame is inserted into the cup creating a vacuum. As the cup is placed on the body the vacuum creates suction. Therefore pulling up the tissues underneath.
Cups can be used in various ways. For example, flash cupping. This method involves rapidly placing and removing the cups. In addition they can be moved along the body in a gliding motion. After that they are left stationary for 5 – 20 minutes.
Cupping therapy may leave bruise like marks. These can last a few hours to a few days. The temporary marks are not actual bruises neither are they painful. They cause no permanent scarring or change to skin pigmentation.
