Hijama Cupping Therapy

Hijama Cupping Therapy is a great treatment for deep detox, to unload the body of overloaded toxins, release compression, ease aches, pains and headaches and restore the health back to peak condition.

Hijama Cupping removes stagnated blood directly from particular meridians on the body. An antibacterial/ antiseptic is applied to the areas to be cupped and specialised ‘cups’ are placed on top with the use of a handheld pump to create a vacuum. This pulls up the skin and draws stagnated blood to the surface of the skin creating a ‘cup-kiss’ mark. The areas are pricked gently and the stagnated blood is drawn out. It is a gentle treatment that yields excellent results in aid of relaxation and decreasing pain in the body.

This therapy combines well with decompression massage for complete release and reset of stress and tension in the body.

BENEFITS OF CUPPING THERAPY
