“I had a wet cupping session, got much healthier afterwards.”
Types of Cupping
Dr Sharaf offers the following types of cupping therapies at her clinic:
Wet or hijama
As it is known in the Middle East, hijama is a therapy that uses disposable plastic cups which are applied to the areas of treatment, left on for a few minutes, then removed. After which small scratches are made to the skin with a disposable lancet and then the cups are placed back on the treatment area for a second time. This second step may be repeated.
Dry cupping is done with glass cups that are sterilized after each use or silicone cups. It uses the negative pressure created by the vacuum of the cup draws up the skin, subcutaneous tissue and muscle layers a few millimetres into the cups and encourages blood flow.
The cups can be left in one place on the skin or moved around as part of massage cupping. The treatment can be utilised to influence the movement of bodily fluids such as lymph fluid, venous drainage and the reduction of stagnant flow.
As the treatment uses negative pressure, it lifts up muscles and tissues rather than pressing down on them like in a conventional massage. It enables the treatment to massage tissues from the inside out. This has beneficial effects on muscles, fascia, and skin, as well as influencing the deeper organs.
Also known as massage cupping, this is done by applying an oil to your skin to allow the cup to move freely, causing ease of gliding and less skin pinching. Gliding cupping stimulates your relaxing parasympathetic nervous system and releases relaxing and soothing substances from your body, such as endorphins.
Gliding cupping is helpful for stress relief, muscle spasms, lymphatic drainage, and stimulating your immune system, plus stimulating the blood circulation by increasing the surface skin circulation.
