Ozone cupping is the application of ozone gas onto an affected area.
It’s a pretty simple process, described by the international scientific committee of ozone therapy as, “Ozone bagging or gasification … is a local way of application of ozone. It consists of filling an ozone-resistant [cup] with the O3/O2 mixture, creating a micro environment around the wound, allowing the body tissues to keep in contact with the gas mixture.”
Depending on the location of the wound, ozone limb bagging may be preferred.
Both ozone cupping and limb bagging are typically used in combination with ozone oil. A multitude of studies have been conducted on ozone oil in skin diseases. Depending on the severity of your issue, you may only need ozone oil.
To summarize, ozone cupping or bagging is commonly used for:

Diabetic foot ulcers can be quite harmful and lead to amputation.
Ozone cupping, bagging, or oil has demonstrated some results in helping to heal a diabetic foot ulcer. Like anything, it’s not 100% effective but studies declare it a viable option.

Non-healing wound and infected wounds after surgery
Chronically infected wounds
Ozone gas is a strong antiseptic. When it’s applied on the skin or to an affected area, it eliminates the infection and stimulates growth factor. The benefits are twofold — first it gets rid of bacteria, virus, and fungus, then it stimulates the healing processes so the affected area heals up quicker.
Here are the potential negative side effects of ozone cupping:
Limb bag treatments are one of the few treatments where you start at a high amount of ozone and then work back down. Ozone concentration for limb bagging ranges from 30 - 80 ug/ml (gamma). In the most extreme cases, you can start at 80 gamma and then follow the protocol to decrease by 10 gamma every week.
But for the purposes of this protocol explanation we will stay with the Madrid Declaration’s recommendations of starting at 60 gamma, then decreasing by 10 gamma every week until arriving at 30.
