What happens during a Cupping therapy treatment?
The area to be treated is first massaged with oil prior to the cups being placed. A flame (ignited cotton wool soaked in surgical spirit) is briefly placed in glass cups to create a vacuum. These cups are then placed on the body to create suction that pulls up the tissues underneath.
The cups can be rapidly removed and replaced, moved along the body in a gliding motion or left stationary for 5 – 20 minutes.
You will feel an initial pulling due to the suction as the cups are placed on the body. This should not be painful. If at any time during the treatment you feel pain or discomfort, inform the therapist and the cups will be removed immediately.
Cupping therapy can leave bruise like marks on the skin that can last for a few hours to a few days. They usually fade away within a few days although on some occasions they can last longer. These marks are not painful and are only temporary, causing no permanent scarring or change to skin pigmentation.
Who can have Cupping Therapy?
Before we begin your treatment we will have a consultation with you to ensure the therapy is suitable for you. In some circumstances Cupping Therapy is not appropriate. For example, if you are on blood thinning medication, have peripheral neuropathy, easily inflamed skin, etc.
