HOW IT WORKS IS FASCINATING
While wet cupping therapy may look painful from photos, it is not! Even children have received the therapy.
The cups are placed on specific areas of the body and this creates a vacuum, allowing blood to be drawn into the cups.
This occurs through tiny incisions made prior to the placement of the cups. These incisions are incredibly small - about the thickness of a human hair.
The aim of Wet Cupping is to extract stagnated or congested blood from certain points around the body.
The theory is that such blood could slow down the delivery of much-needed oxygen, minerals, electrolytes, vitamins, enzymes, immune system cells, and antibodies to your cells, tissues and organs.
Stagnant blood causes dysfunction in areas of the body and this can impair the immune system, organ function, and more.
We follow a high standard of cleanliness and hygiene for medical practices, using disposable (single use) cups for every therapy session.
Public Health Act Regulation 2012, NHMRC Guidelines for high-quality practices and abide by the AS/NZ 4187 and AS/NZ 4815 Australian Standards.
