Copying files across computers using SSH and MAC OS X Terminal?

I'm trying to copy my .profile, .rvm and .ssh folders/files to a new computer and I know how to use the `cp` and `ssh` commands but I'm not sure how to use them in order to transfer files from one computer to another. Any help would be great, thanks!
