Why Cupping Is Used

People who having cupping done find that they don’t need to rely on pain killer medication and in some cases they reduce the risk of invasive surgery. Sporting and gym enthusiasts use cupping as part of their recovery process and some people even use cupping as part of a beauty treatment. Whatever the reasoning cupping has proven to be a source of good health and vitality for mind body and soul. Above all cupping is also a Sunnah.
The Cupping Procedure and What it Involves
During your Cupping session our experienced Practitioner will go through a health assessment and find out from you, the patient, what you hope to achieve through cupping. Once this has been established, the practitioner will place suction cups along the parts of the body that require the treatment. You will feel a pinching sensation, this is due to the cups pulling the skin and encourage the blood flow to the cupping areas of your body.
Once there is enough blood flow the cups will be removed and small incisions will be made. This will feel like a tiny pin prick. The cups will be replaced back on the area and the suction will start to draw out the toxic blood.
The whole process takes around 30-45 mins and after the session you will feel re-energised and on your way to becoming a healthier person.
