How Cupping Therapy Works
Cupping therapy falls under two categories that are commonly practiced.
Dry cupping & Wet cupping.
Dry cupping is the more straightforward form of the two kinds.
It involves placing suction cups on specific points of a person’s body, depending on the target of the treatment. The suction cups create a steady pull on the person’s skin and internal vessels, causing more blood to flow to that area. This improves the overall circulation of that particular area and allows the release and drainage of excess fluid and toxins as well.
Wet cupping, on the other hand, involves making small incisions on the skin, with a sterile instrument, before placing the suction cups on the person’s skin. This process is excellent for improving blood flow to certain areas of the skin, but it also takes away accumulated blood and excess fluid for areas of edema.
However, it is essential that wet cupping is only practiced by professionals in a clean and sterile environment with properly sterilized instruments and where all infection control protocols are followed.
Cupping for Varicose Veins
Varicose veins is a condition that is often found in the elderly, pregnant ladies, and/or other individuals who have to stand for long hours on end. The cause of the varicose veins is when the semilunar valves in the veins fail to keep the blood flow moving effectively. More often the veins will develop in the legs and causes blood to pool in that particular area, often leading to swelling, edema, dull pain, and fatigue in the legs. Over the years, many different treatments have been proposed for varicose veins. However, they all have their limitations and aren’t always successful.
Cupping for Varicose veins is safe, effective, and has little to no side effects. Both dry and wet cupping techniques can be used to treat varicose veins.
Dry cupping is a painless and straightforward procedure done using massage cups or gliding cups, that can be done at home as well. Follow these steps to do effective dry cupping at home: -
- You start by rinsing, drying, and lightly exfoliating the area you intend on cupping.
- Next, you apply a tiny amount of your preferred oil to the area. This will help the cups glide over your skin more smoothly and improve circulation flow quickly.
- Then take your suction cup, and either squeeze it to create a small vacuum or connect it to a small vacuum pump, before placing it down on the cupping area.
- Gently glide over the varicose veins and spider veins in a zigzag pattern, directing all the blood flow upwards. Do not pull downwards, and only use unidirectional, upwards motions.
- Repeat the previous step over all the spider and varicose veins.
- Once you’re done, massage the area with your hands using gentle pressure.
Wet cupping is usually reserved for more acute cases since it involves puncturing the skin and then applying suction cups with slightly more suction power to effectively draw out old, deoxygenated blood, excess fluid, and toxins from the area. The suction effectively removes accumulated fluid and draws in fresh blood to the area. An amazing detox for the lymphatic system.
