1. Massage cupping – During treatment, the glass cups are moved in a massage pattern around the skin to help massage sore joints and muscles.
2. Stationary cupping – During treatment, glass cups are applied to the skin and not moved until the end of the session.

How is a cupping session performed?

A cupping session is generally performed using the following tools: glass cups, cotton balls, rubbing alcohol, candles and matches. Each of these tools is applied during a session as follows:

– A cotton ball is soaked in alcohol and lit on fire by a burning candle
– A vacuum is created inside a glass cup by holding the lit cotton ball inside the cup.
– Once the vacuum is created the cotton ball is removed and the cup is immediately applied to the designated acupuncture point on the skin.
– Four-six cups are applied during a session and are not left on the skin for longer than fifteen minutes.

Although a cupping session may sound painful, it is nothing of the sort. In fact, usually the only thing a person feels is a slight suction where each cup is strategically placed. After a session, you may have circular red marks on your skin from the cups. These red marks will fade and are a sign that the cupping or suction treatment therapy has successfully increased the blood flow within your body.
