Cupping therapy

What is Cupping Therapy?

Fire cupping is commonly referred to as cupping and is a traditional medicine practice in China that uses traditional Chinese practice to provide relief from pain and improve health.

It is performed with hot cups placed on the body, providing a seal which helps to bring the skin in a tiny way. We use a glass cup for best muscle release results.

The common cupping styles include dry cupping, also termed Hijama, and Bleeding cupping.


Cupping can usually result in raised white dots whose surfaces usually cause painful skin irritation.


The majority of cupping marks will disappear within two to seven days - this is very normal.

How Does Cupping Work?

Through negative pressure cupping releases stiff soft tissues and relieves tightness. The lifting effect of the cups also gives muscles the opportunity to stretch to heal myofascial triggers.


A little massage oil helps facilitate the movement of the skin of the cup. The movement of the cup causes friction and provides little, however important heat.

Cupping and Blood Flow

Cupping works by enabling the body to create suction over targeted areas on the skin. The warm air inside the cup causes a vacuum, which increases blood flow and improves circulation.

This can be especially helpful for those suffering from muscle pain as it reduces tension in stiff muscles, allowing them to relax and recover more quickly. It can also reduce inflammation in joints, which might help relieve chronic pains associated with certain conditions.

Cupping encourages healing and relaxation of both mind and body, making it an effective holistic treatment option for many health concerns.

Dry cupping, for example, involves using stationary cups to stimulate specific points on the body in order to improve energy flow and reduce inflammation.

Wet cupping uses suction to draw blood from the body, allowing toxin to be released and stimulating healing.
