The Healing Therapy of Cupping


Hakim Saeed, an Egyptian by origin, arrived in South Africa in 1995. With well over 30 years of experience in cupping, he was one of the first people to establish cupping in South Africa. The establishment of cupping in South Africa was not an easy task, since cupping was not a common practice and was still very strange among South Africans back then. With a lot of dedication, time and countless workshops, Hakim Saeed gained peoples trust, respect and confidence as a result of assisting many with their illnesses which modern medicine couldn’t help. After a strong 17 years in the field of cupping in South Africa, Hakim Saeed can surely consider himself a leader in cupping throughout RSA as per testimonies of many South Africans, including doctors and specialists whom have been treated by him personally.


Cupping Therapy: Cupping is a method of treatment in which a jar is attached to the skin surface to cause local congestion through the negative pressure created. An incision is lightly made to allow the congested blood to ooze out. This type of treatment has been practiced by the Egyptians, Babylonians and Chinese for thousands of years. Cupping is a therapeutic process of removing unclean blood from the body and is a form of medical treatment which has been recommended by Shariah. Cupping removes the toxins around the organs and limbs so that can send messages to the brain efficiently. When the cup is left in place on the skin for a few minutes, blood stasis is formed and localized healing takes place.

Cupping therapy has been further developed as a mean to open the “Meridians” of the body. Meridians are the conduits in the body through which energy flows to every part of the body and through every organ and tissues. There are five Meridians on the back that, when opened allow invigorating energy to travel the whole length of the body. It has been found that cupping is probably the best way of opening those meridians.

Cupping has also been found to affect the body up to four inches into the tissues to release toxins, activate the lymphatic system, clear colon blockages, help activate and clear the veins, activate the skin, clear stretch marks and improve varicose veins. Cupping helps the system to balance sugar, iron, cholesterol, calcium, pressure and hormones. It even controls the blood cells and its shown to be the best remedy for lupus.

Cupping is the best deep tissue massage available. It is very useful and very safe. Cupping brings fresh blood to the area so it tends to improve circulation. It also helps to open up the chest and arteries and benefits the lungs and can even benefit menstrual problems and digestive problems, too. Most commonly it’s used for aches and pains of various types as well as respiratory problems, cough, wheezing, high blood pressure, sinus, arthritis, sugar diabetes, stress, migraine tumor, gout, pinched nerve, skin diseases and over 72 types of diseases which are relating to blood. It looks like something out of medical alchemy but it is just an alternate method of treatment. Each cupping session lasts for about 10 to 15 minutes and it can be repeated, once the marks are cleared, until the problem is resolved.

Cupping should be performed by an experience practitioner who has been trained.
