The issue of Hijama wages & Hijama while Fasting, like there is a hadith which says that the fast will be broken if hijama is done & a hadith quotes that Prophet S.A.W.W Him Self had hijama done while fasting & in Ihraam. Similarly both Hadiths are found about Hijama wages. The following Hadith says that Prophet Him self gave wage for it. This issue is solved by Ulma's that this controversy is because that at a time it was prohibited but after some time these action of Prophet S.A.W.W shows that there is no issue for its wages (Allah knows well).
Narated By Anas : That he was asked about the wages of the one who cups others. He said, 'Allah's Apostle was cupped by Abd Taiba, to whom he gave two Sa of food and interceded for him with his masters who consequently reduced what they used to charge him daily. Then the Prophet s said, "The best medicines you may treat yourselves with are cupping and sea incense.' He added, "You should not torture your children by treating tonsillitis by pressing the tonsils or the palate with the finger, but use incense." Bukhari 5304
Narrated Aun bin Abu Juhaifa: I saw my father buying a slave whose profession was cupping, and ordered that his instruments (of cupping) be broken. I asked him the reason for doing so. He replied, “Allah’s Messenger (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) prohibited taking money for blood, the price of a dog, and the earnings of a slave-girl by prostitution; he (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) cursed her who tattoos and her who gets tattooed, the eater of Riba (usury) and also the one who gives it and the maker of pictures.” [The Book of Sales: Sahih Bukhari]
The report narrated by al-Bukhaaree (2103) from Ibn ‘Abbaas y who said, "The Messenger r was cupped and he gave something to the one who treated him. If it had been forbidden, he would not have given him anything." This is the wording of al-Bukhaaree. He also narrated another version (2279) which says: "And he gave the cupper his wages; if he knew that it was disliked, he would not have given him anything."
It was narrated from Abu Hurairah that the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w) said: 'The cupper and the one for whom cupping is done both break their fast." (Ibn Majah 1679)
It was narrated that Ibn 'Abbas said: " The Messenger of Allah (s.a.w) had cupping done when he was fasting and in Ihram." (Ibn Majah 1682)
These narrations seem contradictory but Imam Nawawi said, "The scholars have differed over the earnings of the cupper. Most of them from the early and present generations are in the opinion that it is not forbidden… this is what is well known from the madhab of Ahmed…" [Shahr Saheeh Muslim 10/233].

Current vacuum therapies are a modern use of an ancient tool and possess the benefits of traditional use, along with many incredible new applications. This therapy utilizes glass or plastic cups and a vacuum pistol, bulb or machine to create suction on the body surface. These cups are moved over the skin using gliding, shaking, popping and rotating techniques while gently pulling up on the cup, and are parked for a short time to facilitate joint mobilization or soft tissue release. This suction can reach deep into the soft tissue or can work superficially to pull inflammation and toxins toward the surface so that the skin and lymphatic system can readily eliminate them. Scar tissues often release quickly, despite the age of the injury or keloid tendencies.
One of the most amazing aspects of this technique is the "separation" that the vacuum produces in tissue layers. This enables water absorption and renewed blood flow to undernourished and dehydrated tissue, which is invaluable in pre- and post-surgery treatments. It is becoming evident that separation of fused, congested soft tissue and increase in tissue function can be a catalyst for change in many current health conditions. A powerful vacuum is created as the cup is placed against the skin, the suction draws the flesh upwards, resulting in a negative pressure massage as the cup moves across the face and body. The action produces a healthy pink glow to the skin leaving skin supple and healthy.
Cupping can comfortably:
Decrease or relieve pain and inflammation from injury or chronic conditions.
Relieve deep muscular issues and reduces muscle spasms.
Release and soften scar tissue and loosen post-surgery adhesions.
Lift and stretch soft tissue to separate fascia and restrictions.
Increase range of movement and flexibility in joints.
Promote healthy circulation and open the energy flow of the body.
Move stagnation and enable normal lymphatic flow.
Enhance any athletic training program to improve performance
