Cupping Delivered To You
What is cupping massage?
Cupping is a type of alternative therapy that involves placing suction cups
along the back to aid in reducing inflammation and promoting pain relief.
Cupping improves energy flow within the body and facilitates healing through
the increase of blood flow along the back and spine.
What are the benefits of cupping massage?
- Increases blood flow
- Increases circulation
- Revitalises nervous system
- Detoxifies the body
- Reduces stretch marks, scars and varicose veins
- Aids digestion
- Relieves pain
How Does Cupping Therapy Work?
Cupping therapy can be provided in a number of different ways, from the
different types of cups used, to the method of how the cups are placed. Two
common types are:
- Wet cupping: Wet cupping is a cupping method that involves pricking
the skin with a small needle to draw blood before placing the cup. This
ensures that both blood flow is increased during the cupping treatment, but
also that blood toxins are properly released and expelled from your body.
- Dry cupping: Dry cupping involves heating the inside of each
cup,usually with an alcohol soaked cotton ball, to create a vacuum between
the cup and the skin. This method increases suction, meaning that blood flow
is increased through pressure and circulation throughout the body is
As providers on the Blys platform are independent wellness professionals, the
method of cupping therapy they provide may differ from one therapist to
another. If you have a preferred cupping treatment you would like to book,
you can always add a note to your therapist when placing your booking.

While cupping therapy’s main function is to increase blood flow and circulation within the body, there are many other benefits, including reducing swelling and muscle knots.
Cupping has not proven to have long-term effects when dealing with chronic pain management. However, cupping therapy is recommended to do 1-2 times a week, making it a sustainable therapy method for pain relief.
Our recommendation? Take it easy, get extra rest and of course, stay hydrated to further expel any toxins released within the body!
Cupping is an exhaustive process for the body, relieving tension and increasing blood flow may lead to feelings of fatigue or tiredness post-appointment.
Cupping can be done 1-2 times every week! We recommend you consult with your cupping therapist to confirm the regularity of your cupping treatments.
Cupping is a type of alternative therapy that involves placing suction cups along the back to aid in reducing inflammation and promoting pain relief. Cupping improves energy flow within the body and facilitates healing through the increase of blood flow along the back and spine.
Cupping is a unique massage technique that involves placing suction cups on the skin to create a vacuum effect. While some people find it beneficial for relieving muscle tension and promoting relaxation, its effectiveness and comfort can vary from person to person, and it may not be suitable for everyone, so it’s essential to consult with a qualified practitioner to determine if it’s a good option for your specific needs.
With Blys you can book a cupping massage from $129.
The worthiness of cupping therapy depends on individual preferences and specific health goals. Some people find it beneficial for muscle tension relief, pain management, and relaxation.
Cupping in massage involves placing cups, typically made of glass, silicone, or plastic, on the skin to create suction. This suction can help increase blood flow, alleviate muscle tension, and promote relaxation by drawing the skin and underlying tissues upward, which some people find therapeutic.
Cupping therapy is believed to offer several potential benefits, including improved blood circulation, which may aid in pain relief and muscle relaxation. It’s also thought to help with detoxification by promoting the movement of fluids and toxins out of the body and can provide a unique and soothing massage experience.
After a cupping session, it’s generally advisable to avoid hot showers or baths immediately because the skin may be more sensitive, and the sudden temperature change could be uncomfortable. It’s recommended to wait a few hours or until any skin redness or sensitivity subsides before taking a warm shower to prevent any potential discomfort or irritation.
- Bleeding disorders like haemophilia.
- Blood clotting problems, such as deep vein thrombosis or history of strokes.
- Skin conditions, including eczema and psoriasis.
- Seizures (epilepsy).
Hijama and cupping are exactly the same thing! Cupping, previously called Hijama, is a form of traditional therapy that increases blood flow and circulation within the body.
Cupping therapy has been used for thousands of year to relieve back and neck pain. Modern cupping therapy offers up many physical benefits that come from cupping and the increase of blood flow. Cupping is now used to re-energise the body, reduce stretch marks, scars or varicose veins, aid in digestive problems and provide pain relief, especially for those that suffer from chronic pain.
Hijama, or cupping therapy increases blood flow and circulation within the body using suction cups
Facial cupping is known to increase oxygen-rich blood circulation, which strengthens skin and connective tissues. While you may not see immediate results after your cupping session, the long-term skin benefits of cupping are out of this world!
Hijama or cupping therapy releases toxins within the body through suctioning techniques, but it is actually the kidneys that expel those released toxins.
Same as a massage, we recommend drinking lots of water after your cupping appointment to help along the removal of toxins from the body.
Cupping therapy is not considered a painful or unsafe treatment, however, this type of therapy applies suction to different parts of the body. This means that there may be some discomfort during your appointment.
If you have any concerns about pain, it is advised that you bring it up during your consultation with your cupping therapist and alert your therapist during your appointment if any pain is felt.
You can get cupping therapy on your back quite regularly, with the recommendation being 1-2 times every week! We recommend you consult with your cupping therapist to confirm the regularity of your cupping treatments.
Depending on the cupping therapy method chosen, as well as your own areas of pain or concern, the cups can be placed on the back, stomach, arms, legs or the face.
A consultation with your cupping therapist prior to your appointment will help you discern the areas on your body where cups will be placed.
The cup is generally left on the body for up to three minutes. In saying that, there are many different kinds of cupping therapy methods, so it is best to speak with your cupping therapist during your consultation or prior to your appointment if you have any questions.
You can definitely do cupping therapy at home, in fact, that’s the whole point of Blys! At Blys, we connect clients with providers that can perform different kinds of therapy from the comfort of your very own home. Cupping therapy at Blys is a great way to destress and re-energise without the inconvenience of travelling.
Common side effects of cupping therapy may include temporary skin discolouration, bruising, or mild discomfort at the cupping sites, which typically resolve within a few days. In rare cases, more severe side effects like burns, blisters, or infection can occur if the cups are left in place for too long or if proper hygiene and safety precautions are not followed, highlighting the importance of seeking cupping therapy from trained and qualified practitioners, like those on the Blys platform.
