What is Cupping?
Cupping is an ancient alternative medicine that involves a registered AYUSH Doctor putting special cups on the skin for a few minutes to generate suction. There are two types of cupping – dry and wet.
Dry cupping involves the therapist putting a flammable substance like alcohol, herbs or paper in a cup and lighting it on fire (“fire cupping therapy”). Once the fire goes out, the cup is placed upside down on the skin. The air inside the cup cools, creating a vacuum. This causes the skin to rise and for blood vessels to expand. The cup is usually left in place for about 3 minutes.
Wet cupping, also called “hijama,” takes the process of dry cupping a step further. Once the cup has been left in place for 3-5 minutes, the therapist administers little cuts to the raised skin allow to release of toxic blood and fluids. Doctor may apply pressure to speed up the fluid flow process, and another cup is placed on the same area to draw out the liquids.
Who should go in for cupping therapy?
You should give this treatment a try if you want to get relief from stress, pain, allergies, flu, fatigue, back pain, colds, muscle aches, anxiety and itchy skin conditions.
Right from celebs to athletes, all are into this therapy. However, there are certain precautions that need to be taken during this procedure. Cupping is not for those who bleed very easily or can’t stop bleeding. People with skin ulcers or edema should also not get this done. Cupping over large blood vessels is also a bad idea. Extreme caution should be taken while cupping pregnant women and it should never be done on their abdomen and lower back.
