Wet Cupping

Wet cupping is an old form of treatment used in both the East and the West. In wet cupping suction cups are applied to specific parts of the body and subsequently very small superficial incisions are made and the cups then reapplied. This process allows withdrawal of about 25mls of blood in each cup. Suction cups are applied in many of the same positions as acupuncture needles and it is likely that the therapeutic effects of cupping are achieved in a similar way to the benefits of acupuncture needles.
