Al-Hijama / Wet Cupping
Cupping therapy dates back to ancient Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern cultures.
One of the oldest medical texts books in the world describes how the ancient Egyptians were using cupping therapy in 1,550 BC for medicinal purposes.
The treatment is performed by a specially trained wet/blood cupping therapist, using a surgical instrument to pierce the skin. The suction cup is then applied to collect a small quantity of harmful substances and toxins from the blood to promote healing and blood flow.
This therapy is known to be a tradition in the middle east and far east for purity, cleanliness, detoxification aswell as stress relief.
Cupping increases blood circulation to the area where the cups are placed. This may relieve muscle tension, which can improve overall blood flow and promote cell repair. It may also help form new connective tissues and create new blood vessels in the tissue.
Cupping therapy is used to treat conditions and disorders such as
Blood disorders (anaemia and haemophilia)
Rheumatic diseases (arthritis and fibromyalgia)
Fertility and gynaecological disorders
Skin problems (eczema and acne)
High blood pressure (hypertension)
Anxiety and depression
