Throughout the ages, virtually every culture around the world has discovered cupping therapy through numerous ways, shapes & forms.
In Arabia we have the ancient practice of Hijama. In Africa, animal horns were utilized to create a vacuum of negative pressure on the body (cupping effect). In Japan, the use of bamboo shoots was & still is employed to do the same thing.
The famous Roman physician Galen was a major advocate & employer of "Cupping Therapy". Numerous historians believe that the effectiveness of the Roman legions was largely in part due to the Medical Team behind it (which was run by Galen!).
There are strong historical correlations that suggest the origins of "Cupping Therapy" lead back to the long forgotten days of Atlantis!
