What is Cupping Therapy?

Cupping Therapy is an ancient medical treatment that relies upon creating a local suction to mobilise blood flow in order to promote healing (British Cupping Society 2008). There are two types of Cupping Therapy (CT); Dry Cupping and Wet Cupping Therapy. In Dry Cupping, cups are placed on the skin for a period of with suction causing localized hyperaemia and healing is encouaraged. In Wet Cupping however, cups with suction are placed on the skin for a couple of minutes followed by superficial skin incision being made to the cupped skin. A small quantity of blood is then extracted from the skin. The blood extracted is believed to be harmful to the body and its removal brings about relief and healing.

History of Cupping Therapy

The use of Cupping Therapy is documented in the history of most great cultures and civilisations of the past with the earliest available records revealing extensive use by the ancient Egyptians, Chinese and Middle Eastern cultures. Hippocrates (400 BC) is known to have written in detail about Cupping Therapy. The Ebers Papyrus (1550 BC), the oldest known medical text, also contains information on this subject.

Cupping Therapy is also referred by its local names; Hijamah in the Middle East and hacamat in Turkish cultures. In the west, Cupping Therapy was part of the basic repertoire of clinical skills a doctor would be expected to understand and practice until the latter part of the Nineteenth Century with some Eastern European countries such as the Balkans and Bulgaria continuing to practice Cupping Therapy to this very day.

The practice virtually disappeared from western medical cultures in the 20th Century however the Middle East, Chinese and Turkish cultures were able to preserve this technique in its natural form whilst adhering to safe current medical practice. In Chinese cultures because it conforms to the chi-theory of healing and in the Islamic World as it received religious encouragement by the Prophet Mohammed (pbuh).

In parts of Western Europe there has been a recent upsurge in the interest from both public and academic perspectives. Scientific studies have began researching the effects of Cupping Therapy in an attempt to better understand the mechanisms underpinning this fascinating medical treatment that has truly withstood the test of time. Celebrity endorsements by Professional sports players (Football Players and Olympic Swimmers) through to leading Hollywood actresses have further raised the profile of Cupping Therapy.

Some Chinese and American schools of medicine teach Cupping Therapy as part of their Complementary Medicine programs. In Germany and England, some Medicine and Health Sciences faculties provide Cupping Therapy as elective modules. Esteemed universities in Turkey are currently conducting Cupping Therapy based research. Currently, the Turkish Ministry of Health is overlooking applications of Cupping Therapy to ensure safety and high quality standards.


Cupping Therapy in Islam

In Arabic, Cupping Therapy is called Al-Hijamah. Literally, this means to absorb and pull, and for the body, or the hijm (what is sucked), to return to its natural state. The word hacamat is often used in Turkish when cupping is combined with bloodletting as Wet Cupping Therapy. The practice was revitalized by both the use and recommendation by the Pophet Mohammed (pbuh). In over 100 narrations from the Prophet Mohammed (pbuh) have been cited in different collections of hadith (saying and actions of the Prophet Mohammed [pbuh]). As a result, cupping therapy has both survived and florusihed under Islamic culture and was key feature in medical practice during the enlightenment years of Averoes (Ibn Sina) et al., paving the way for the development of modern western medicine as we know it today.

Clinical Research on Cupping Therapy

Greek physicians and the last of the large Traditional Medicine advocators, Ottoman physicians, have noted many results of clinical trials. For example, in the 15th century, during the reign of Fatih, the Amasya Hospital’s famous chief physician Şerafettin Sabuncuoğlu, has notes on the correct application of Cupping Therapy (hajamat) in the treatment of pneumothorax [iii]. Historically, it has also been used in extracting blood, blood related diseases such as haemophilia and for the management of infections (pus from boils).

Cupping Therapy has successfully been used to treat a broad range of medical conditions such as; blood disorders (anaemia, haemophilia), rheumatic diseases (arthritic joint and muscular conditions), fertility and gynaecological disorders, skin problems (eczema, acne) as well as improving general physical and psychological well-being.

Research has shown the clinical effectiveness of CT for both physical and psychological conditions. To date research has involved the use of small scale studies however recent publications from China, Middle East and Iran in the form of Randomised Control Trials and Systematic reviews have provided a solid foundation for further studies.
