Things You Should Know About Is Cupping Therapy A Scam?


Cupping is a popular ancient form of alternative medicine. In Hijama therapy, a therapist puts special cups on your skin to create a suction. People use this therapy to treat pain, inflammation and blood flow and for relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage. The cups used for suction can be made up of glass, bamboo, earthenware and silicone.

Is Cupping Therapy a Scam?

Cupping therapy might be trendy now, but it is not a new one. The history of  Hijama therapy goes back to the ancient Egyptian, Chinese and Middle Eastern cultures. So, it’s definitely not a scam!

The different types of cupping therapy are:

During both types of cupping, your therapist will first put a flammable substance such as paper, alcohol or herbs in a cup and set it on fire. As the fire goes out, they will put the cup upside down on your skin to create a suction.

Does  Hijama Therapy Work?

According to experts, this therapy works magically as it creates hyperaemia or haemostasis around a person’s skin. This increases or decreases a person’s blood flow under the cups, which helps to treat pain and inflammation. It gives a relaxing feeling, and so customers prefer this type of therapy. Not just that, cupping therapy also improves overall health as it removes the energy blockages that TCM practitioners identify as barriers to the flow of healthy energy. Research shows that many athletes who participated in the 2016 Rio Olympic Games used Hijama therapy to get relief from severe pain. 

Doctors confirmed that cupping therapy can cure various lung disorders like cough, asthma and bronchial congestion. The majority of our health disorders are due to the lack of oxygenated blood accessing certain areas. Hijama increases the blood flow rate and helps the oxygen-rich blood reach all our body parts. It can get rid of various ailments and give us a relaxing experience.
