Cupping therapy is an alternative therapy that has gained immense popularity over the years. However, its origins date back to ancient times and were practiced by the Egyptians and Macedonians about 5500 years ago.

This therapy involves the use of special cups that are placed on the skin to create a suction effect. According to experts, suction enhances the flow of energy and facilitates the healing process. However, the benefits of cupping therapy in Singapore and elsewhere are not limited to improving the energy flow. It can also boost the immune system, enhance blood flow, and eliminate toxins.

Cupping therapy is also believed to play a vital role in pain alleviation. The theory behind this is where there is stagnation; pain may exist. Therefore, the pain will resolve once the stagnation is addressed and managed – cupping therapy in Singapore does exactly this!

Different practitioners may use cups made from an array of materials, including glass, silicone, and plastic. However, some therapists may also use cups constructed from bamboo, earthenware, or even ceramic. They are usually applied to the back, stomach, shoulders, and any other regions where the cups can be easily attached.

Cupping massage in Singapore typically comprises two main methods: dry and wet cupping. While dry cupping is primarily used for musculoskeletal conditions, wet cupping is utilized for autoimmune conditions as well.

Dry cupping involves a pumping technique that pulls the skin tissue into the cup, and it may last between 5 – 15 minutes. With wet cupping, the therapist makes a tiny incision following the suction process to draw out a tiny amount of blood in order to remove ‘bad or contaminated blood’, leaving the patient with cleaner blood circulation (free from harmful toxins).

According to a pilot study conducted on the effects of wet cupping therapy on the blood levels of some heavy metals, results showed that this treatment helped with the removal of certain accumulated fluids and toxins as a result of a significant reduction in the levels of heavy metals in their blood.
