Difference Between Wet and Dry Cupping Hijama

Cupping is one of the core therapeutic procedures in medical history. Hippocrates recommended cupping for a large number of acute and chronic ailments.

Important reflexology zones for cupping therapy, the so-called ‘Head’s zones’, are located on the back. These Head’s zones are related to the internal organs and organ systems.

Before the cupping therapy is carried out, these reflexology zones are palpitated in order to feel for pressure-sensitive hardenings (gelosis) underneath. It can be assumed that the functional system of the respective reflexology zones that have gelosis beneath them are disbalanced.

Cupping therapy discharges toxins from these areas using cupping glasses and a vacuum pump.

Cupping therapy causes intentional local hematoma, stimulates circulation, removes toxins and activates the self-regulation of the affected areas.

There is a distinction between dry and wet cupping. Dry cupping helps improve local circulation, strengthens the muscles and relieves muscle cramps. Wet cupping involves drawing small amounts of blood in order to relieve blocked areas of tissue and possibly produce a direct pain remedy.
