A perspective on the effects and benefits of the ancient art of Hijama (Cupping) therapy - By David Parker ND

This technique "sucks" out what we call "lamig" in the Philippines during the treatment. You will observe the lump inside the glass on your back gradually shrink towards the end of the session.
