CUPPING/ BEKAM

Cupping is a simple application of quick, vigorous, rhythmical strokes to stimulate muscles and meridian points and is particularly helpful in reducing pain and swelling associated with various diseases. Dry cupping pulls the skin into the cup without scarifications, while in wet cupping the skin is lacerated so that blood is drawn into the cup. By creating hyperemia around a person’s skin to increases a person’s blood flow under the cups. Another way cupping is thought to help is by opening the pores of the skin to allow the body to release toxins.
