This series of products are 5 different sized cups. Each size is sold separately with 5 of the same sized cups in each package.

They also can be used for standard stationary cupping (not moving cupping), however their design limits how long they would last for this purpose.
Steps for using cups:
- Clean cup and area to be treated with alcohol or approved disinfectants.
- Connect valve portion of the cup with a standard plastic cupping pump. Note: Cupping pumps manufactured in Korea are ideal. Other pumps may or may not be suitable. Ensure the coupling piece of the pump covers the lower lip ring to ensure proper suction (see picture).
- Place cup on area and pump to the desired level.
- Remove by breaking seal formed at skin and cup edge using finger or suitable object Discard after use in suitable sharps or medical waste container. If non Hijama or Wet cupping techniques were used and multiple usage is required, clean up with warm soap and water and swab edge with 70% alcohol before next use.
