Cupping Therapy

What is Cupping Therapy?

Cupping therapy is a soft tissue technique using special cups on your skin to create suction. This suction helps to stimulate blood circulation, improve the range of motion in the affected areas, and can help to decrease tension and alleviate stress. Dating back to ancient cultures, cupping therapy is an alternative medicine that has been used to help with pain and inflammation, among several more conditions.

What are the Benefits of Cupping Therapy?

Increases Circulation

Reduce the Appearance of Cellulite

Improves Digestion

Relieves Muscle Tension

Cupping therapy has grown in popularity as a treatment option to alleviate pain and inflammation associated with many conditions; however, there are even more benefits. Cupping therapy also increases circulation, which can help relieve muscle tension and reduce the appearance of cellulite. Through focused blood flow, cupping can also help your body to flush built-up toxins through the lymphatic system. Restoring your lymphatic circulation can help to reduce the appearance of scarring and stretch marks, even in areas where cups are not directly applied. The benefits of cupping therapy can also be associated with improved digestion and respiratory system.

How does Cupping Therapy Work?

Depending on your treatment needs, we will place cups on your back, stomach, or other parts of your body. We may use up to 32 cups that are left in place for several minutes. A vacuum or suction inside of the cup will pull the skin upward, drawing fluid to the area. As a result, your body will begin to stimulate the natural healing process by sending more blood to the treated area. Some treatments may also involve moving the cups to allow stretching and massaging as part of the cupping therapy.
