An overview of Cupping (Hijama)
Cupping Hijama is a part of alternative therapy. It includes placing cups like instruments on the skin to create suction. The suction may promote healing with blood flow.
Cupping increases the blood circulation to the area where the cups are applied. This may result in relieving the muscle tension, which can improve the overall blood flow and promote cell repair.
There are two main categories of cupping performed:
-Dry cupping is a suction-only method.
-Wet cupping may involve both suction and controlled bleeding.
It depends on your medical condition and your preference which will help determine what method is used.
