Blood pressure and lipid profile are strongly linked to function, particularly in patients with hypertension disease (HTN). That study was aimed to differentiate between the cupping therapy and continuous aerobic exercise effect on lipid profile in hypertensive men. Thirty volunteers male patient with primary hypertension selected from outpatients Desouk general hospital. Their age ranged between 40-50 years, they were divided into two equal groups: group (A) attended a program of cupping therapy one time per month for three months and group (B) attended a program of continuous aerobic exercise on a treadmill for 30 minutes, two times per week for three months. Analysis of the results revealed that there was a major decrease in blood pressure (systole and diastole) and lipid profile (Triglyceride LDL, and Total Cholesterol) and increase in HDL during the cupping therapy closely same continuous aerobic exercise. A major decrease post treatment compared with that pre-treatment (p > 0.05) in both groups, but there was no major difference between both groups (A, B) in pre-treatment and also post treatment (p > 0.05). Both cupping therapy, as well as continuous aerobic exercises, showed a significant decrease in blood pressure and lipid profile (Total Cholesterol, Triglyceride and LDL) and a significant increase in HDL post-treatment compared with that pre-treatment.
