The main benefits of bloodletting: - Invigorate the smooth flow of qi and blood, especially when the patient has qi stagnation - Disperse blood stasis, in cases of stubborn joint pain, muscle sprain and localized swelling and numbness - Drain excess toxic heat accumulation, in cases of high fever and extremely sore throat

Bloodletting FAQ

  • How effective is bloodletting / wet cupping?

    As for the effectiveness of the treatment, bloodletting is a niche treatment used in select cases for treating particular symptoms (such as Skin diseases, Sprains, Headache, High Blood Pressure, High Fever, Swelling etc), and is not a treatment for general wellness. As such, we insist on a consultation with our physician beforehand so as to assess suitability of the treatment.

    Bloodletting is used as a treatment for fever, hypertension (high blood pressure), lung inflammation, and pulmonary edema (excess fluid in the lungs).
