Dry cupping, also known as “dry” or “fire” cupping, is a non-invasive form of therapy.

The suction generated pulls the skin and superficial muscle layers into the cup, which can result in circular marks on the skin post-treatment. Dry cupping is typically used to:
Relieve Muscle Tension: Dry cupping can help alleviate muscle tightness and reduce pain.
Improve Blood Circulation: The suction created during dry cupping enhances blood flow, promoting overall well-being.
Release Toxins: Some practitioners believe that dry cupping can assist in releasing toxins from the body.
Wet Cupping: A Controlled Bloodletting Technique
