Medieval Period


The lessons of high cultures in Europe didn't get lost, but rather experienced a time of prosperity in Arabia. Amongst many philosophical and scientifical lessons, cupping found a place in medicine as "Hajama", too. There are even reports that the prophet Mohammed himself was a supporter of cupping.

Technical realization

In comparison to antique, nothing really changed regarding cupping techniques besides using clay or glas vessels instead of animal horns and bamboo.


Cupping therapy was applied at various symptoms, similar to antique times. The most frequent one was certainly excess of blood and void in back and neck areas.
