What is Cupping Therapy

Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.

Wet cupping creates a mild suction by leaving a cup in place for about 3 minutes. The therapist then removes the cup and uses a small scalpel to make light, tiny cuts on your skin.

Next, he or she does a second suction to draw out a small quantity of blood.

You might get 3-5 cups in your first session. Afterward, you may get a natural antibiotic ointment and bandage to prevent infection. Your skin should look normal again within 10 days. Wet cupping removes harmful substances and toxins from the body to promote healing.
