The modern method of cupping uses rubber pump instead of fire to create a vacuum. Sometimes the therapist uses silicone cups which he can move from place to place on your skin like a massage effect.
In wet cupping method, the therapist leaves the cup for 3 minutes on your skin to create a mild suction. Then the cup will be removed and a small scalpel or a needle is used to make tiny cuts on your skin. And then again the cup suction is done to remove the dead cells and impure blood.
Cupping technique involves creating a vacuum, or suction, on the skin to gently draw the tissue upward into the cup, to mobilize blood flow in order to promote healing.
