Who Cannot Have Wet Cupping?

  • Pregnant women will not be treated.
What Are The Types Of Cupping?
There are two types of cupping : Dry and Wet Dry cupping is the other form of cupping where no incision are made and cups are used to create suction. After creating suction the cups are removed and toxin eventually are removed by normal means (i.e. through the urine). Wet cupping is basically dry cupping plus repeated suction along with small incisions that will be made over the skin. This draws toxins directly out of the circulation . It should only be done by trained by medical professionals as it involves blood and blood products. It is not for everyone, please discuss with your practitioner to see what types of cupping is best suited to you as an individual. For example, people taking blood thinners would not be a candidate for wet cupping.
What Is The The Science Behind Cupping?
  • Cupping involves the creation of vacuum suction or negative pressure.
  • This ‘suction ‘  starts to collect blood along with toxins that are brought to the surface.
  • Small cuts are then made on the skin.
  • Suction cups are re applied to the skin  allowing for increased absorption at the arterial and venous end of the small capillaries.
  • Toxins are collected at the end and discarded.
  • The whole process of cupping allows for increase in blood flow. Increase blood flow has a positive effect on stimulation of the body’s system to help promote healing.  Furthermore, by means of wet cupping endorphin /hormone release occurs that has beneficial effects that reduce inflammation.
  • Traditional Chinese Medicine or (TCM) suggests that cupping draws out ‘heat’ and ‘dampness’ in the body to promote well being.
COVID And Cupping, Does It Help?
Blood cupping will definitely help remove harmful toxins from viruses and bacteria. It can certainly help you heal quicker from COVID pneumonia. Covid typically is a viral infection that affects the lungs and blood system. Some patients who have covid , develop blood clots from inflammatory mediators in the blood. Inflammation causes thickening or increases the viscosity of the blood. By applying eastern medicine techniques along the lung points, cupping will help renew and restore your energy levels and allow for better breathing.
Do You Use Anesthetics?
No. Because that can deter toxin removal by vasoconstriction of blood vessels.
