What is Fire Cupping?

Here at The Cupping Clinic, we offer a range of services, including fire cupping. If you’re wondering what it is, fire cupping is a traditional therapeutic practice that dates back centuries and provides holistic healing and relaxation. In this method, glass cups are warmed using fire to create suction when applied to the skin. The suction promotes increased blood flow, aiding in the release of tension, toxins, and stagnant energy from the body’s tissues.

At The Cupping Clinic, our skilled practitioners specialise in fire cupping to target specific areas of discomfort or imbalance, helping to alleviate muscle tension, reduce inflammation, and promote your general well-being. The warmth generated by the cups enhances circulation, bringing fresh oxygen and nutrients to the treated areas while facilitating the removal of waste products.

Fire cupping therapy is known in the cupping community for its effectiveness in addressing various health concerns, including muscle pain, stress, and respiratory issues. It offers a deeply relaxing experience, promoting both physical and mental relaxation. If you’re searching for relief from chronic pain or simply looking to unwind and rejuvenate, our fire cupping sessions provide a natural and therapeutic solution to enhance your overall health and vitality. Don’t waste a minute; experience the transformative benefits of fire cupping at The Cupping Clinic today.

Fire Cupping FAQs

Why Fire?

There are many types of cupping, but fire cupping is the most traditional, original form of Chinese medicine. It uses glass cups (also traditional) and the fire “creates a better suction with glass cups,” Fire cupping removes the “cold” in the body — cold is considered one of the “evils” in Chinese medicine of which practitioners aim to rid the body.

What About Marks?

The marks left after cupping is nothing to worry about because they are painless. Depending on the patient and what they suffer from, some marks may be darker than others. However, this usually heals within 2-5 days.

Treatment Process

Fire cupping involves soaking a cotton ball in almost pure alcohol. The cotton is clamped by a pair of forceps and lit via match or lighter, and, in one motion, placed into the cup and quickly removed, while the cup is placed on the skin. The fire uses up all the oxygen in the cup which creates a negative pressure inside the cup. The cup is then quickly placed onto the body and the negative pressure “sucks” the skin up. Massage oil is applied to create a better seal as well as allow the cups to glide over muscle groups (e.g. trapezius, erectors, latissimus dorsi, etc.) in an act called “gliding cupping” or “sliding cupping”. Dark circles may appear where the cups were placed because of capillary rupture just under the skin.
