Hijama Melbourne - How Wet Cupping Works

Hijama (also known as wet cupping) is a safe therapeutic and remedial treatment that has been used by trained therapists for thousands of years. It has been widely popular due to its wide range of benefits and ability to remove toxins from the body. Here’s how wet cupping works:

3 Step Process

1) Cupping

Hijama begins with a round of dry cupping in order to numb the skin to prepare it for Hijama wet cupping. This process involves placing the cups on the skin for about 5 minutes. Cups are placed on areas of discomfort, depending on the condition and location of pain.

2) Small superficial incision

The cups are then taken off the body and small superficial incisions are created through the use of a small scalpel blade. These cuts are very small and only made on the first layer of the skin.

3) Suction

The cups are then placed back onto the body and using negative pressure, the body is stimulated to remove unhealthy toxins. This process helps to increase the flow of detoxified blood among a range of other benefits.
