Frequently asked questions about Hijama/Cupping
Do you provide a massage service?
Yes we do. Rest assured, we provide a sports massage in which we are qualified in and happy to provide.
Does wet cupping hurt?
No, however you may feel an itch if it’s your first time but this is normal hence we advise using olive oil/black seed oil to relieve the itchiness/discomfort.
Do I need to do anything prior to having my session?
Avoid eating for 2 hours as this will activate the digestive system carrying nutrients around the body. Please stay hydrated, have a shower prior to attending (wet cupping mainly) as it is best to avoid a shower for 24 hours once wet cupping is complete.

Cupping is a safe procedure. We follow the professional guidelines of health and safety, hygiene and method. We are fully qualified too so rest assured, you are in safe hands.

It could last anything between 45-75 minutes. This is because we take our time to provide quality cupping, and we perform a consultation which could last anything around 10-25 minutes prior to beginning the therapy.
