Following the same procedure as dry cupping, though in wet cupping incisions are made to extract toxic/harmful blood out from beneath the skin surface. The incisions are made by using a sterile surgical blade scratching the surface of the skin very lightly and reapplying the cups. This is one of the most effective ways to detoxify the body of pollutants and the benefits are tremendous. It improves energy levels, removes toxins, breaks down inflammation, increases fresh nutrients to muscles, maintenance should be obtained by good healthy nutritious diet.

Warm bamboo herbal cupping
Bamboo cups are warmed in herbal water and applied to various parts of the body depending on where treatment is needed. With its heat penetration it helps to heal some injuries, back problems, good for stiff joints, built up tension, coughs and colds, widely used in Chinese medicine.
Detox wet cupping
In detox cupping we apply the cups to certain areas of the body creating a vacuum suction, leave it for a few minutes then we remove them to do tiny incisions to draw blood out. This method is the most up to date and modern way of bloodletting to help detox and boost the immune system, detox organs and muscles.
After wet or detox cupping we recommend you do not shower for 24 hours after treatment, avoid sauna, steam rooms and swimming until incisions have healed. We highly recommend a change in diet, to nice healthy white meats, pulses, fresh fruit and vegetables. Avoid dairy products and processed foods for a minimum of 3 days to get maximum benefits.
Please note: As wet cupping is extracting blood from beneath the skin surface, please be aware that it is very important to get it done by a fully qualified and certified practitioner. Also to minimise the risk of cross infection, a clinical environment is paramount to your health.
