Ever fell while playing? And when you came home with bruises and swelling, did your grandmother place a hot cloth dipped in water? And did that ease your pain? The advanced and seamless version of what your grandmother did, is Cupping.
To put in everyday words, it is paati vaaidhyam, reinvented. Completely traditional based with roots aging back to not just decades and centuries ago, but estimates say cupping has been here helping humankind for more than 5000 years.
Cupping, they say, had its origin in Egypt and to support the claims, there are even scriptures and descriptions of cupping and related, on the walls, in Egypt, which has sent historians on a hunt to explore. Maybe this was the reason why Egyptian Queens and Women from that era have always been known to be prettier
It developed over time from the original use of hollowed-out animal horns to suck out and drain the toxins out of snakebites, skin lesions, etc. Horns slowly evolved into bamboo cups, which were eventually replaced by glass. Centuries later, therapeutic applications developed with the refinement of the cup itself, and with the cultures that employed cupping as a health care technique.
While historians and other intellectuals do the honors by delving deep for finding out how cupping began, and we, let’s try to restore this traditional and cultural therapy and pass on the same to the generations to come, just like how our ancestors did.
You and I, both have a role in preserving our tradition.
