Is there a difference between vacuum cupping & fire cupping ?


Many people ask what’s the difference between vacuum (suction) cupping and fire cupping. Huang et al (2011) found in their results that Elevation of local blood perfusion with vacuum-cupping was of longer duration and more pronounced than that of traditional fire-cupping, but for both methods, the instant efficacy was nearly the same. 

Huang et al (2011) concluded LDPI is a useful method for evaluating cupping effects. Although patients generally still enjoy the traditional method of fire-cupping, the new vacuum-cupping method can enable a more standardized and faster procedure in future.
