Chad - Cupping - Indigenous medicinal practise

Chad, Central Africa - Cupping - Indigenous medicinal practise. Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a local suction is created on the skin; practitioners believe this mobilises blood flow in order to promote healing. Suction is created using heat (fire), mechanical devices or the use of a tube or horn (as shown on this postcard). Date: circa 1930s
