Dry Cupping Techniques

An expert medical doctor, physiotherapist, or acupuncturist can perform cupping treatment. First, the skin is cleaned, and then cups are placed on the skin to make suction. Suction can be produced by the traditional method of lighting alcohol-soaked cotton ball or now modern suction cups come with pull-out vacuum apparatus. The suction force from cupping opens up tiny blood vessels under the skin, which helps to heal the pain.

Cups are applied for five to seven minutes, depending on the situation and intensity of the pain or problem. Cupping helps in channeling energy flow as well as blood circulation as increased circulation lessens the muscular tension or spasm and repairs the muscular tissue.
