Cupping therapy, or Al Hijama, as a form of non-invasive healing is known to be effective in healing a number of conditions, but one of the most surprising factors is its effectiveness in healing skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis, for which conventional medicine does not have lasting treatment. Cupping therapy, also known as Al Hijama, has been proven to help patients suffering from hives or urticaria and acne. Both forms of cupping therapy, wet and dry can be used to heal skin conditions.
How It Works
Cupping therapy is based on the belief that diseases are caused when the positive energy flowing through the meridians or channels of the body faces congestion and blockages. Removing this congestion can induce the body to heal itself. Cupping therapy draws blood to the affected areas and thus energizes the skin tissues. This flow of blood brings oxygen and fresh nutrients while the lymphatic system that produces the necessary antibodies needed to cause healing are also stimulated. The blood flow further works to detoxify and remove the pathogens that cause the skin conditions.
All these factors together result in the skin healing itself. When wet cupping is used, it is often noted that instead of blood, more of a white fluid is released that indicates the removal of toxins.
Conventional forms of healing eczema and psoriasis are often directed at alleviating the symptoms and discomfort like itching and burning sensations. But, cupping therapy might just work better because it induces healing on a subcutaneous level. However, your therapist might recommend that you continue to follow the prescribed treatment of your medical practitioner and only use cupping therapy to supplement the treatment. This is because there is always a possibility that the condition might not respond to therapy and continues to appear from time to time.
