Types of Cupping
In the past, professionals used animal horns to perform cupping. Later, they used bamboo to make suction cups which were then replaced by ceramic. Suction was created by utilizing heat. The cups were heated and then applied to the patient’s skin. As the cups cooled, they drew in the skin.
Modern cupping is not different, but it’s performed using glass cups, which resemble balls, but with one open end. There are 2 types of cupping these are dry and wet cupping. Dry cupping uses suction only, while wet cupping involves suction as well as controlled medicinal bleeding.
During the process, the practitioner places a cup on your skin; the cup is heated with fire. The practitioner uses fire from paper, herbs, or alcohol to heat the cup directly. Some practitioners use rubber pumps for suction instead of traditional methods.
