The treatment will tend to leave temporary round marks on the surface of the skin that look like a purplish bruise. This happens because blood from blood vessels and the tissues below is pulled up into the patient’s skin, the same as getting a bruise. It is however contraindicated with hemophiliacs and people with similar diseases.
Cupping treatment should also be avoided with skin infections and on any unhealthy or damaged areas on the surface of the skin, including noticeable areas where the skin itself is inflamed, damaged or sunburned. Skin diseases and many skin conditions are also contraindicated. The health benefits are many, but as with any treatment, there are some possible side effects.
