Healing Benefits of Cupping: 4 Modalities of Cupping

What is Cupping?

Generally, cupping is the process where plastic or glass cups are placed on the skin and then suctioned into place by use of a vacuum pump or fire suction. This is known as negative pressure" which separates the superficial layer of skin, muscles, and tissues to filter out stagnated blood and decrease muscle soreness within those layers. Cupping has 4 main modalities: wet, dry, moving, and fire cupping. Each modality helps increase blood flow to damaged areas of the body and is a great therapy for muscular pain, joint pain, skin problems and respiratory issues .

Three Modalities of Cupping 


Dry Cupping

Plastic cups are placed on the skin and then suctioned into place by use of a vacuum pump. This creates "negative" pressure which separates the superficial layer of skin, muscle and tissues and encourages healthy blood flow

Wet Cupping/ Bloodletting

After dry cupping, small superficial shallow incisions are made on the surface of the skin to release stagnated blood. This filters out toxins under the layer of skin, muscle and tissue to make way for fresh blood flow. A Safe, healthy, noninvasive procedure!


Moving/Massage Cupping:

A gentle massage with our premium oils. We then lightly suction a cupping cup on the back and gentle move it in different strokes and movements for a relaxing detoxifying experience.

Fire Cupping:

The use of glass cups and fire to create a suction. The heat from the fire creates a suctionand provides a warm sensation on the body. think of a hot stone massage but with a deep suction to encourage blood flow to damaged area.
