    Your Frequently Asked Questions about Cupping: 

    What is Cupping?

    'Hijama' (Wet Cupping) is the process of applying cups to various points on the body by removing the air inside the cups to form a vacuum and draw out toxic stagnant blood.  Cupping is used to either detox the body or to heal the body by stimulating the body's natural immune system by removing toxins from the blood.as each individual is different and will respond differently to different modes of treatments.We have found that cupping is really effective in patients with pain and or those who have blood-borne illnesses.

    Is cupping safe?

    Cupping is safe when carried out by a qualified health practitioner. We have fully qualified and registered male and female health practitioners who carry out the cupping treatments. They have been trained to the highest level and verified by the professional standards authority, providing the highest in healthcare treatments. Many are also qualified physicians and registered with their own speciality healthcare body and follow a strict professional code of practice and conduct. All our equipment is disposable and sterile as we ensure the highest in hygiene and safety of the patient care. Post treatment advice is also given.

    Does cupping hurt or have any side-effects?

    This depends on the type of skin, some skins are more sensitive thank others, as we make small scratches on the surface of the skin, it may sting a little, a bit like a mosquito bite for a few seconds when making those scratches but after they are made one is generally fine.The scratches may leave a few bruised marks which may remain from 3 to 10 days and then heal up.

    How many sessions are required? 

    For many people just one treatment as and when required is enough to balance their immune system, however for people with medical conditions we suggest a regular course of treatment of six treatments to start with i.e cupping every two weeks over a period of six times will help restore the health at each session and keep symptoms away thereby improving your quality of life.

    How long does a session last and what will be required?

    Normally between forty five minutes to an hour, depending on the body-part being treated,you will need to undress some of your clothing. Female patients are treated by female therapists.It is advised to wear loose and old clothing at the session. Also to abstain from eating or drinking anything at  least three hours prior to the cupping session as it may make you nauseous and you may feel sick. So Nil by mouth for approx 3 hours prior to cupping treatment.

    Can I go to work after the cupping session?

    Although many people will be able to carry on with their living after a cupping session, we strongly recommend resting on the day of cupping for the body to fully restore and rebalance its healing powers, especially if your work involves heavy physical or mental effort, to get the most from your cupping treatment.

    How often should I get cupping done?

    This again varies from individual to individual and one's state of health as well as the body,s healing response to treatment.For many wishing to detox or maintain general well-being, a cupping session every two months as a maintenance routine will be fine whilst for others with medical conditions regular treatments over a length of time will be required.Possibly starting at six to eight treatments every two weeks for the first course, for medical conditions needing to be treated. Almost 70% of diseases of the blood are managed and may be curable by Hijama cupping therapy, especially those due to blood stagnation.
