Q: What is the difference between wet cupping and dry cupping?
A: Our clinic does dry cupping where we use air suction instead of fire to get a tight seal on your problem areas. Dry cupping is used in our office as manual therapy treatment option. Wet cupping involves puncturing the skin and allowing a moderate amount of blood to be pulled out for toxin release.
Q: Do I have to be bruised and does cupping hurt?
A: Typically cupping will leave a bruise, but our patients never report pain and only have a problem with how it looks. However, you are in luck because you can get great results working within your comfort zone and we have ways of preventing bruising while still getting you results. We always tell patients to try to let us work carefully into a little hurt to feel good, but never a no pain no gain. However, this is variable and each person should be listened to because they know their unique tolerance.
Q: What are the cups made of?
A: Typically cups are made from glass, bamboo, earthenware, and silicone
Q: What is fascia?
A: Fascia is a covering around everything inside of your body and you can think about it like plastic wrap. It actually resembles a netted onion bag and spider web.
Cupping is when a small cup is placed on an area of the body and suctioned to draw up the skin and other soft-tissue. This causes your skin to rise and redden as your blood vessels expand.
- Cupping increases blood circulation
- Relieves muscle tension
- Improves overall blood flow to promote cell repair
- It helps the formation of new connective tissues
Cupping dates back to ancient Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern cultures. One of the oldest medical textbooks in the world, the Ebers Papyrus, describes how the ancient Egyptians used cupping therapy in 1,550 B.C.
There are 2 types of cupping wet and dry. Dry is where the cups are left on or moved. Our office does not offer wet cupping. Wet cupping is when a mild suction is done by leaving a cup in place for about 3 minutes. Then the therapist removes the cup and uses a small scalpel to make light, tiny cuts on your skin. Next, a second suction is done to draw out a small quantity of blood.
There are 2 ways to get suction on your skin. The traditional way was to put a flammable substance such as alcohol, herbs, or paper in a cup and set it on fire. We prefer to use a pump that can suck the air out of the cup without using fire.
