Cupping is an ancient healing therapy that can be used to ease pain. Cupping is a form of traditional Chinese and Middle Eastern medicine. People have practiced cupping therapy for thousands of years. In Chinese medicine, pain is viewed as stagnation (something that isn’t moving). If you have an injury, the swelling sometimes just stays in the location of the injury and surrounding tissue. Cupping can help the body reabsorb the fluid and move the swelling out of the area.
Cups are placed on your area of pain and discomfort. Inside the cup, a vacuum or suction force pulls skin upward. We offer Dry Cupping at the office with the use of suction handle as compared to the glass cupping which utilizes heat.
Cupping benefits are the following:
- Release scar tissue and fascial adhesions
- Reduce painful trigger points
- Improve circulation, blood and lymph circulation
- Relieve pain
- Promote mobility and range of motion
- Improves mature scars
- Decrease toxins
