Cupping & Hijama in Milton Keynes

Cupping is an ancient healing therapy in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction that is used to ease pain. Cups can be placed on your back, stomach, arms, legs or other parts of your body. Inside the cup, a vacuum or suction force pulls skin upward.

About Cupping

Cupping is a form of traditional Chinese and Middle Eastern medicine. People have practiced cupping therapy for thousands of years.

How does cupping work?

Suction from cupping draws fluid into the treated area. This suction force expands and breaks open tiny blood vessels (capillaries) under the skin. Your body treats the cupping area like an injury. It sends more blood to the area to stimulate the natural healing process. Some people theorize that cupping clears the pores and releases toxins.

Aftercare for Cupping

What to do after cupping or a cupping massage:

Drink a lot of water. 

Water helps flush your lymphatic system of the cellular waste that cupping helps release from your tissues. 

Stay warm. 

Try to cover the area(s) where you received cupping.


You may feel more tired than normal or experience flu-like symptoms after cupping (headache or general body aches). This is a temporary reaction by your immune system to the cellular waste that cupping helps release.

What to avoid after cupping or a cupping massage:

For 4-6 hours post cupping, avoid exposure to:

1. Caffeine, alcohol, sugary foods and drinks, dairy, and processed meats
These foods slow down your body’s ability to process the treatment.

2. Hot showers, saunas, hot tubs and strong air conditioning 
After cupping, your skin will be more sensitive to temperature in the areas where the cups were placed. Give your skin time to recover. If possible, shower with filtered water to avoid reintroducing unnecessary chemicals onto your skin.

3. Intense exercise

4. Cold and windy conditions.

I've just completed a course of six laser hair removal sessions on my neck and I'm over the moon with the results. I've had a number of laser treatments in the past at a different clinic and although it slowed down the hair growth it eventually grew back almost as bad and I still had to shave in between, but the machine used at the Feather Skin Clinic is on another level - I noticed a difference after just one session and there was barely any regrowth in between over the period of about six months. Sarah, the owner, is very knowledgeable and offers great prices so I've now booked in for some sessions on my face. I have a hormone disorder that causes excess hair that's been a source of embarrassment for years so this treatment is a godsend. Would recommend!
