Types of cupping therapy

There are 2 types of cupping therapy:

  1. Dry cupping: It involves only suction.
  2. Wet cupping: It involves combination of suction and controlled medicinal bleeding.

In cupping therapy, a flammable substance like paper, herbs or alcohol are put in a cup and set to fire. After the fire goes out, the cup is placed upside down on the person’s body. As the cup cools down, it will create vacuum, this will allow the blood vessels to expand which in turn will lead to improved blood circulation.

In wet cupping, after the practitioner creates suction for 3 minutes he removes the cup and makes superficial skin incisions on that part of the body. Then he performs second suction to draw blood. This technique will remove the harmful substances and toxins from the body.
