Dry Cupping is performed by applying a plastic cup to the surface of the skin and using a pump the air is removed by suction.
This method draws blood and fluid away from any inflamed area to the surface of the skin. Cupping should not be performed on skin that have open wonds. Dry cupping can be performed at any time, on any day, and can be left for 10-15 minutes. Numerous cups can be applied at any one time although it is extermely important that the therapist is able to observe the cups whilst they are applied to the skin to avoid any blistering occuring.
