While cupping therapy has now become trendy in the medical community, this form of treatment is not new.  Cupping dates back to ancient, Chinese, Egyptian, and Middle Eastern cultures, and can be used for purposes such as:

  • Pain management.
  • Reducing inflammation.
  • Managing blood disorders.
  • Stress relief.
  • Injury treatment.

Cupping involves the use of special cups that are placed on your skin for three to five minutes to promote suction.  The suction is created by lighting a fire inside the cup using a flammable substance such as alcohol or herbs. Our practitioner will wait until the flame has gone out, then place the cups on the desired area of your skin.  As the temperature inside the cup cools, it will create a vacuum that forces your blood vessels to expand. This expansion will lead to the skin inside the cup rising and reddening. Cupping therapeutic effects and can be used when traditional forms of treatment have not garnered the expected results.  When going through cupping therapy with an experienced staff like ours, the potential for side effects is limited.
