Cupping is a Sunnah practice, used by and highly recommended in Islam by the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) as a cure to all diseases.
The cupping procedure itself involves mild suction created on the skin using special cups placed on specific points on the body. This mobilises blood flow to promote healing, and is believed to remove stagnant congested blood and lymph and to help improve circulation. The suction is believed to move the blood toxins to the surface of the skin, allowing the body to remove it and replace it with fresh, nutrient rich blood to replenish the body.This process is used widelt across the UK and indeed the world to treat a great number of medical illnesses as well as promoting general physical and psychological well-being.
