Traditional Cupping (wet) and Myofascial Cupping (dry) therapy are a favourite at fisio to be used alongside manual therapy sessions. The treatment helps with deep relief and detoxification by releasing toxins through the suction process. Also known as Hijama, traditional cupping dates back centuries.
As one of the oldest methods used for releasing toxins, it works by lightly puncturing the skin to draw out “bad” blood brought to the surface during the suction process. This see’s the tissue beneath receives increased blood flow to the affected blocked areas, stimulating toxin release.
When opting for Myofascial Cupping, blood circulation is still stimulated, and built-up toxins are released through the lymphatic system, part of the body’s waste elimination system. Targeting tight areas helps reduce pain and soreness alongside helping to promote cell repair.
Another benefit is that it stimulates the immune response locally and systemically. Both wet and dry cupping can result in cupping marks at different intensities. These indicate the level of toxins in the area and range from bright red to dark purple. They will typically last a few hours or up to a week in some cases and aren’t anything to worry about. Cupping therapy helps with your overall well-being while releasing painful trigger points in the body.
Areas of blockage, tension and pain will be sourced, targeted and released by the cups. Stretching and mobility movements may be added in by your therapist with cups for the further release of overworked and tight areas. The duration of the treatment will depend on the concern and the location targeted on the body.
